This week on this Sausage of Science, Chris and Cara chat with Dr. Andrew Sorensen, a post-doctoral researcher within the Human Origins and Material Culture Studies groups at the Faculty of Archaeology at Leiden. Dr. Sorensen’s work investigates pyrotechnology in the Palaeolithic, with a focus on fire use and fire making by Neandertals.

Dr. Sorensen’s work has been covered by a number of popular outlets, including The Washington Post. To get in touch with him, follow him on Twitter @Pyropithecus, or see his website with the University of Leiden: https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/staffmembers/andrew-sorensen#tab-1.
