The Human Story
Over the past twenty years there has been an explosion of species’ names in the record of human evolution, due both to new discoveries and to a growing understanding of the diversity that existed in the past. Drawing on this new information, The Human Story demystifies the fascinating cast of characters who hold the secret to human origins.
Applying his considerable expertise and practical experience, Charles Lockwood describes the main sites, the individual fossils, the key discoveries and the basic facts about each species – what it looked like, what it ate, how and when it lived, as well as how we know all this.
