Details

Human evolution is a process that has occurred during the last 6 million years. It is only in recent years, however, that a scientific understanding of the origins of today's humans has emerged. This understanding continues to change, and as the story of the first humans unwinds, modern humans learn much about themselves. Recent evidence gathered from DNA salvaged from the skeletal remains of Neanderthals, for example, has led many scientists to believe the ancestors of modern humans were a separate species from Neanderthals and the two never interbred. This book, highly illustrated and appealing to young students, presents an easily understood overview of what is known about the first humans.

The evolution of humankind on Earth, and the emergence of modern man, is the subject of The First Humans. The volume contains many illustrations and is both easy to read and interesting for young students. Covering the fossil record; the various stages of human development, including cultural and social innovations; and the ways that scientists gather information on the first humans, this book guides students through an exciting past. It answers the question, who were the first humans?
