Description
 
THE WISDOM OF BONES - in search of human origins - The search for the missing link between apes and humans has excercised a hypnotic spell over anthropologists for a long time. The quest began in Java in the 1890s, moved to China in the 1920s and '30s, then to Africa ten years later, and in the 1960s to East Africa where the findings of Louis Leakey sketched a new view of human evolution. In 1984 in kenya the search for our origins moved yet another step forward when Alan Walker discovered the most complete skeleton of Homo erectus ever found: the 'Nariokotome Boy'. Walker offers a clear and concise account of the historical debate about our human origins. A beautiful scientific detective story told by a master detective.
