    The final publication of results of the excavations at Pontnewydd cave in north-east Wales has been eagerly awaited.

    Sidestone Press 2008; US$ 35.00

    The sophistication of Neanderthal behavioural strategies have been the subject of debate from the moment of their recognition as a separate species of hominin in 1856.

  • The Story of the Human Bodyby Daniel Lieberman

    Penguin Books Ltd 2013; Not Available

    Story of the Human Body explores how the way we use our bodies is all wrong. From an evolutionary perspective, if normal is defined as what most people have done for millions of years, then it's normal to walk and run 9 -15 kilometers a day to hunt and gather fresh food which is high in fibre, low in sugar, and barely processed. It's also normal... more...

  • Missing Linksby John Reader

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 25.99

    This is the story of the search for human origins - from the Middle Ages, when questions of the earth's antiquity first began to arise, through to the latest genetic discoveries that show the interrelatedness of all living creatures. Central to the story is the part played by fossils - first, in establishing the age of the Earth; then, following... more...

    Origin Press 2014; US$ 14.99

    For millennia, great thinkers have contemplated the meaning and purpose of human existence; but while most assumed that humanity was the end point of creation or the pinnacle of evolution, Ted Chu makes the provocative claim that the human race may in fact be a means rather than an end?that humankind will give rise to evolutionary successors. In this... more...

  • The Improbable Primateby Clive Finlayson

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 20.99

    In this fresh and provocative view of a seven-million-year evolutionary journey, Finlayson demonstrates the radical implications for the interpretation of fossils and technologies and shows that understanding humans within an ecological context provides insights into the emergence and spread of Homo sapiens worldwide. Finlayson argues that environmental... more...
