Synopsis : READ/DOWNLOAD#) Ancient Bones: Unearthing the Astonishing New Story of How We Became Human Read #book @ePub
A thrilling new account of human origins, as told by the paleontologist who led the most groundbreaking dig in recent history.Somewhere west of Munich, Madelaine BÃ¶hme and her colleagues dig for clues to the origins of humankind. What they discover is beyond anything they imagined: the fossilized bones of Danuvius guggenmosi ignite a global media frenzy. This ancient ancestor defies our knowledge of human historyâ€”his nearly twelve-million-year-old bones were not located in Africaâ€”the so-called birthplace of humanityâ€”but in Europe, and his features suggest we evolved much differently than scientists once believed.In prose that reads like a gripping detective novel, Ancient Bones interweaves the story of the dig that changed everything with the fascinating answer to a previously undecided and now pressing question: How, exactly, did we become human? Placing BÃ¶hmeâ€™s discovery alongside former theories of human evolution, the authors show how this remarkable find (and others in Eurasia) are forcing us to rethink the story weâ€™ve been told about how we came to be, a story that has been our guiding narrativeâ€”until now.
