About the Author

Clive Finlayson is Director of the Gibraltar Museum and adjunct professor at the University of Toronto. He is an evolutionary ecologist with a DPhil from the University of Oxford. For the past fifteen years he has combined his ecological work with birds with leading an international multidisciplinary project that has focused on excavations of the Pleistocene caves in Gibraltar, especially Gorham's Cave, recently confirmed as the site of the last Neanderthals on the planet. His previous publication was Neanderthals and Modern Humans: An Ecological and Evolutionary Perspective (CUP, 2004).

This book covers all the usual material while examining the 'usual' assumptions about these ancestors in a fresh and serious way. Well-written, thought-provoking.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book, written by an expert in the field. The book tackles complex subjects such as anthropology, evolution, archeology, and an overview of the history of the geological and climatic changes that helped shaping the life on earth in different geological stages. Yet, it was written in a way to make it easy to read even for people with no previous exposure to those subjects.
It was highly engaging from the start till the end, and I liked its emphasis on the role of climate in shaping the human evolution, as it has a great relevance in this time of accelerating climate change.
The book will take you through the journey of the human race through history till the current time, at the same time giving you all the tools and information you need to try to follow the trajectory into the future.

Highly recommended.
