British paleoarchaeologist Paul Pettitt chronicles new discoveries that are adding to humans' understanding of our evolution and adaptation, as well as innovations that have contributed to our species' development. In this comprehensive audio tour of our collective early history, narrator Julian Elfer's British-accented performance is animated by a lively pace that keeps the work moving at a pleasant clip. However, the sheer amount of detail chronicling the discoveries relating to Homo sapiens--from our early African origins to sites in Eurasia, Australasia, and the Americas--becomes difficult to follow in the audio format. Notwithstanding Elfer's lively narration, this audiobook might be best listened to with the print book in hand so that one can view the ancient objects as they're being discussed.
