Prehistoric Past Revealed gives an overview history of life on Earth, including the most up-to-date research and discoveries from around the world, as it covers a wide range of fascinating topics - the fossil record, dinosaurs, extinction events, our earliest human anceslors, global environments, climate change - in a highly accessible format. Using timelines, diagrams, sidebar discussion, and breaking down complex ideas into digestible topics, Palmer shows how it has been possible to recover the story of life from the petrified remains of shells and bones scattered through rock strata. He takes us from the present day gradually back into the "terra incognita" of the deep past with its extinct life forms, tracing human ancestry back by centering his discussion around internationally famous fossil sites. Each site reveals another episode in the history of life, as Palmer tells how the environment and life of the time have been reconstructed from its rocks and fossil remains. As it reveals the inner secrets of the Earth, Prehistoric Past Revealed also shows how these discoveries have irrevocably changed our world view

"Seven Million Years explores the discovery of our own species, our nearest relatives and an ancient shared history. It tells the stories of the archaeological finds, the people who made them and the arguments over their meaning and implications. It also reminds us that whilst scientific investigation of our history may have raised as many questions as it has resolved, it has clearly shown how our genes reinforce our commonality and recency as a species. The bones, the stones and the biomolecules show that all modern humans are basically Africans who only spread beyond our tropical 'Eden' some 100,000 years ago."--Jacket
