About this book
The most up-to-the-minute account of our origins available, created in full collaboration with the Natural History Museum. Revisions to this edition include spectacular discoveries and cutting-edge research, including fresh details on the dwarf-human remains from Indonesia confirms that "H.floresiensis" - the 'Hobbit' - was a separate human species.
Human domination of our earth is now so complete that it is easy to forget how recently our role in the history of our planet began: the earliest apes evolved around 20 million years ago, yet homo sapiens has existed for a mere 160,000 years. This title explores various aspects of the study of ape and human evolution.
