Charles T. G. Clarke was born and raised in the county of Longford, Republic of Ireland. He studied a four year B.Sc. (Hons) in Applied Archaeology at the Institute of Technology Sligo from 2007 – 2011. It proved an excellent introduction to the world of Archaeology, but helped him identify his love of hominin evolutionary research. And so in September of 2011, he pursued further studies at the UCL Institute of Archaeology, London, UK. There, he studied an M.Sc. in Palaeoanthropology and Palaeolithic Archaeology. After graduating in 2012, Charles left academia, but to this day, still remains engaged with the latest news of hominin evolutionary research. He maintains the University College London News Page.
Over the years, Charles has developed a social media presence on the topics of Palaeoanthropology and Palaeolithic Archaeology. In 2010, he created a group on Facebook called Palaeoanthropologica. A few years later, he launched a Youtube channel – Cennathis – which is now linked to this blog, Facebook and Spreaker.
He is now part time Science Tutor at the City Literary Institute (City Lit), Holborn, Central London, UK, teaching a variety of day courses on geology and human evolution. He works full time with Archaeological Management Solutions (AMS) on the new Ballaghadereen to Scramogue Bypass in County Roscommon, Republic of Ireland.
