Modern Origins: A North African Perspective by A. Moreno (auth.), Jean-Jacques Hublin, Shannon P. McPherron

By A. Moreno (auth.), Jean-Jacques Hublin, Shannon P. McPherron (eds.)

Over the decade, Africa has taken a primary place within the look for the timing and mechanisms resulting in smooth human origins, and the wealthy archaeological and human paleontological checklist of North Africa is important to this seek. during this quantity, we assemble new examine into the archaeology, human paleontology, chronology, and environmental context of recent human origins in North Africa. the result's a quantity that greater integrates the North African list into the fashionable human origins debate and whilst highlights the examine questions which are at present the point of interest of persisted paintings within the area.​
