The latest science on our human ancestors
Fifty thousand years ago, Homo sapiens was not the only species of humans in the world. There were also Neanderthals in Europe, the Near East, and Eurasia; Hobbits (H. floresiensis) in Indonesia; Denisovans in Siberia and eastern Eurasia; and H. luzonensis in the Philippines. Tom Higham investigates what we know about these other humans and explores what can be learned from the genetic links between us.
Filled with thrilling tales of recent scientific discoveries, this book offers an engaging synopsis of our current understanding of human origins and raises new and interesting possibilities—particularly concerning what contact, if any, these other species might have had with us prior to their extinction.
