This unrivalled illustrated guide to human evolution brings you face to face with your ancient ancestors.

Travelling back in time almost eight million years, the book charts the development of our species, Homo sapiens, from tree-dwelling primates to modern humans. Evolution investigates each of our ancestors in detail and in context, from the anatomy of their bones to the environment they lived in.

Key fossil finds are showcased on double-page feature spreads. Detailed maps show where each species have been found and plot the gradual spread of humans around the world. Written and authenticated by a team of acknowledged experts and illustrated by renowned Dutch paleoartists the Kennis brothers, Evolution presents the story of our species with unique richness, authority, and detail.

Dive deep into the pages of this extraordinary book on Evolution to discover:

- Profiles of every human relative and ancestor discovered to date.
- Illustrations in likelike form wherever possible.
- How geology, archaeology, and fossils come together to tell the story of human evolution.

The book has been fully updated to include the latest discoveries and research - including the newly discovered species Homo naledi - and presents the latest thinking on some of the most captivating questions in science, such as whether modern humans and Neanderthals interacted with each other.
