Synopsis: The reader is taken from the known and familiar past in the first chapter, peeling back the layers to the "terra incognita" of the deep past with its completely extinct life forms. Our human ancestry is traced back through different periods, focussing on different fossil environments, revealing how and when the site was discovered. Covering sites and discoveries from Europe, North America, the Middle and Far East and Australasia, the text is broken down into small digestible topics with box features. Timelines are included for every chapter and sub-topic, illustrating the age of our planet, as well as diagrams of the different stages of evolution.

About the Author: Douglas Palmer is Lecturer at the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education and Supervisor in Natural Sciences (Geology) for Robinson College. He is the author of several books, including Fossil Revolution (2003); Neanderthal (2000), which accompanied the television series Neanderthal; Atlas of the Prehistoric World (1999); and The Marshall Illustrated Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Animals (1999); and Life Before Man (1997).
