Skull of Homo erectus throws story of human evolution into disarray

Post  Tess on Sat Oct 19, 2013 5:49 pm

First topic message reminder :

The spectacular fossilised skull of an ancient human ancestor that died nearly two million years ago in central Asia has forced scientists to rethink the story of early human evolution. Anthropologists unearthed the skull at a site in Dmanisi, a small town in southern Georgia, where other remains of human ancestors, simple stone tools and long-extinct animals have been dated to 1.8m years old.

Experts believe the skull is one of the most important fossil finds to date, but it has proved as controversial as it is stunning. Analysis of the skull and other remains at Dmanisi suggests that scientists have been too ready to name separate species of human ancestors in Africa. Many of those species may now have to be wiped from the textbooks.

Hi Didge, I hope you can still get it, having the ISBN will help, and the publisher's website, at the bottom of the second picture, the back cover.

I have a similar problem, people keep referring to various books and saying 'why don't you get it, it's good.' But there's only so much one can read, otherwise you'll end up with a pile of unread books.
