This superb introduction to archaeology and anthropology looks closely at four ordinary people who lived thousands of years ago and were discovered within the last 20 years: Turkana Boy, Lapedo Child, Kennewick Man, and Iceman. The discovery of the bones of these people has influenced debates about the nature of the earliest members of the family Hominidae.
