No other field of science evolves as rapidly as the one that studies human evolution: the science of our origins, or paleoanthropology. A science which is based on bone or tooth fossils, footprints of bipedal, hairy humanoids, prehistoric sites, Paleolithic-era artefacts, ancient DNA: a variety of clues through which we are attempting to reconstruct our history in the depths of the past. It is a task much like fitting together fragments of a puzzle, a web of fragments, which we will try to untangle, tackling the most recent discoveries regarding our ancestors from Lucy’s era, the first species of Homo, Neanderthals and their genome and the origins of Homo sapiens.
