The answers to these and hundreds of other questions concerning man's 70-million-year odyssey on earth can be found in 'The Field Guide to Early Man', which vividly traces the origins and progress of humankind. With hundreds of two-colour illustrations, the book is brimming with lifelike restorations and reconstructed skeletons, marginal notes and "field guide" drawings, diagrams, maps and charts, all accompanied by a nontechnical, enlightening text. Beginning with man's earliest ancestors, this text examines each evolutionary phase of development, providing a careful analysis of changes and adaptations in anatomy, behaviour, physiology and molecular biology. Successive chapters describe the growth from primitive primate to modern man. The last chapter explains the methods and tools scientists use to trace humankind's prehistoric origins. The notable achievements of the major palaeontologists and archaeologists are mentioned, along with a listing of all relevant museum displays around the world. With the combined expertise of the world's leading scientists and the straightforwardness of a field guide, 'The Field Guide to Early Man' allows readers of all ages to witness firsthand the evolution and development of human life as it has progressed for more than 70 million years
