detail in-depth the breathtaking saga of the human species ndash from controlled use of fire and stone tools to sedentary lifestyle and then the invention of writing.
A pattern of birth, death and rebirth, creation and annihilation has become apparent from studies of fossils by paleoanthropologists
. Nuclear biologists write of subatomic particles or energy constantly undulating and vibrating in a cosmic dance that appear and disappear, forming attachments and detachments in the process.
believe the first hominins left Africa about 1.7 million years ago, though there's some dispute about what species those early migrants belonged to.
In fact, the range on campus is astounding, with biology researchers printing protein models to see how they might fit together and paleoanthropologists
recreating the skull of an ancient ancestor that lived 2 million years ago.
The research gives support to a longtime contention by some paleoanthropologists
that certain ancient skeletons might represent human-Neandertal mixes.
Morphological comparison of canid skulls now leads Shipman and some other paleoanthropologists
to believe that dogs first became genetically and behaviorally distinct from wolves 36,000 years ago.
concluded the species buried its dead, a trait previously believed to be uniquely human, through a process of elimination -- a common approach in a field which often only has old bones to rely on.
