Summary
Peter Robertshaw and Jill Rubalcaba tell the story of early human life using an incredible variety of primary sources: 3.5-million-year-old footprints preserved by a nearby volcano provide evidence of our walking on two legs. A recently discovered cave in France hiding 32,000-year-old drawings reveal our ancestors' artistic side. A grave dug for a dog 8,500 years ago proves the extraordinarily long history of man's best friend. The Early Human World explores not just how we came to be the homo sapiens we are today, but also what life may have been like 300,000 generations ago. Glimpse the world of the earliest Australians, who encountered freakishly gigantic beasts: kangaroos as big as houses, tortoises the size of cars, and snakes twenty-five feet long. Imagine a time when the Sahara Desert was a fertile land, full of farms and herds of prehistoric cattle. The Early Human World brings to life stories from millions of years ago through the adventures of the archaeologists and their remarkable discoveries. The World in Ancient Times dusts off ancient artifacts and texts and assembles them anew as pieces of the never-ending puzzle we call ancient history. Readers become part of the process of historical investigation as they explore these primary sources, learning not just what we know but how we know it. Accomplished historical novelists collaborate with leading historians and archaeologists to weave the most up-to-date scholarship into stories that are vivid, suspenseful, and fun
