Cheltenham Science Festival: Why Did The Chicken Cross The Globe?

June 8, 2017 @ 4:45 pm - 5:45 pm

£7

We Brits eat more than two million chickens a day, but until recently we knew practically nothing about this humble bird. How was it domesticated, and why? Archaeologists Naomi Sykes and Greger Larson discuss fascinating new research from The Chicken Project, revealing that the story of chickens is the story of us, charting the rise and fall of empires, cultures and ideologies and the impact of humans across the globe.
