Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, Human Origins is an accessible and authoritative introduction to paleoanthropology - the science of us.
Written by the celebrated anatomist and television presenter Alice Roberts, Human Origins uncovers the incredible story of how early humans journeyed from Africa to colonise the globe.
Written by the leading lights and most outstanding communicators in their fields, the Ladybird Expert books provide clear, accessible and authoritative introductions to subjects drawn from science, history and culture.
For an adult readership, the Ladybird Expert series is produced in the same iconic small hardback format pioneered by the original Ladybirds. Each beautifully illustrated book features the first new illustrations produced in the original Ladybird style for nearly forty years.
The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information.
