Seven Million Years

The Story of Human Evolution

by Douglas Palmer

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2005, lightly illustrated, hardcover, dustjacket, ISBN 9780297843108

Near Fine Condition, minor edge and shelf wear

'Seven Million Years explores the discovery of our own species, our nearest relatives and an ancient shared history.  It tells the stories of the archaeological finds, the people who made them and the arguments over their meaning and implications.  It also reminds us that whilst scientific investigation of our history may have raised as many questions as it has resolved, it has clearly shown how our genes reinforce our commonality and recency as a species.  The bones, the stones and the biomolecules show that all modern humans are basically Africans who only spread beyond our tropical 'Eden' some 100,000 years ago.'
