The Origin of Our Species (Paperback)

Chris Stringer


"When it comes to human evolution Chris Stringer is as close to the horse's mouth as it gets..."The Origin of Our Species" should be the one-stop source on the subject. Read it now". ("BBC Focus"). Do all humans originate from Africa? How did we spread across the globe? Are we separate from Neanderthals, or do some of us actually have their genes? When did humans become 'modern' - are traits such as art, technology, language, ritual and belief unique to us? Has human evolution stopped, or are we still evolving? Chris Stringer has been involved in much of the crucial research into the origins of humanity, and here he draws on a wealth of evidence - from fossils and archaeology to the mysteries of ancient DNA - to reveal the definitive story of where we came from, how we lived, how we got here and who we are.
