Description: The Personal-Histories Project is an on-going, educational, oral-histories research effort spearheaded by Pamela Jane Smith of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at Cambridge University. Each year, during term, senior scientists are invited to share their memories and life stories. Through their recollections, we better understand twentieth-century science and the development of anthropology and archaeology. Featured in the 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 films are Colin Renfrew, Mike Schiffer, Paul Mellars, Meg Conkey, Henrietta Moore, Alison Wylie, Richard Bradley, Chris Stringer, Meave Leakey and David Attenborough.
