Human Origins : A Short History

See all formats and editions

Humans are the dominant species on the planet. But how did we get here? Human Origins takes the reader on a fascinating 7-million-year journey from our earliest primordial ape-like roots through to the present day. For almost a hundred years, scientists have been trying to decipher the secrets of humanity’s evolution.

At first, they relied on rare pieces of ancient skulls and bone fragments.

But every year, they make new discoveries, uncover new fossils and develop new techniques to tease apart the story of our evolution.

So far, from skeletons to teeth, humanity has found more than 6,000 hominin individuals.

These individuals span several species, all of which tell the tale of human evolution: how our brains changed over time, what we ate, how we lived.

Including the latest scientific findings, Human Origins will also look at some of the biggest questions that remain: What makes humans unique?

Where did the Neanderthals go? And are humans still evolving?
