From the origins (and the evolution) of man to the end of the Neolithic age, this book recounts the adventure of hominids and of modern palaeontology. Thanks to the hypotheses made at the beginning of the 19th century, then the first discoveries of… Read more  human fossils, we have been able to forge an idea of what our ancestors were like. This book analyses their slow evolution, their physical characteristics, describes their living spaces but also their capacity to progress: the discovery of fire, the making of tools, gradual social organisation and the richness of their paintings, engravings and sculptures; testimonies about their daily life and their beliefs. Some of these ancestors disappeared, others evolved, travelled, discovered new horizons. Of all the hominids, Homo sapiens is the only survivor. Their nomad tribes settled in villages and began growing crops, livestock farming and inventing writing, so ringing the end of prehistory.
