This exciting, up-to-the-minute account is divided into three accessible sections. In Search of Our Ancestors examines the contexts in which fossilized remains have been found and the techniques used to study them. The Fossil Evidence traces in detail the evolution of apes and humans, from Proconsul to the australopithecines, and Homo erectus to the Neanderthals and Homo sapiens. The latest fossil finds at major new sites such as Dmanisi in Georgia and Gran Dolina in Spain are appraised, and new advances in genetic studies, including the extraction ofDNA from extinct human species, are evaluated. Interpreting the Evidence reconstructs and explains the evolution of human behavior, describing the development of tool use, the flourishing of the earliest artists, and the spread of modern humans to all corners of the world.
The book is superbly illustrated with hundreds of photographs, diagrams, and specially commissioned reconstruction drawings by the artist John Sibbick. 430 illustrations, 175 in color.
