The Story of How We Colonised the Planet.
Who are we? How did we get here? Part detective story, part travelogue, The Incredible Human Journey retraces the greatest journeys ever made, from the origin of our species in Africa, to our ancestors' colonisation of the globe. Alice Roberts has been travelling in their footsteps, experiencing the extreme physical challenges endured by the early hunter-gatherers as they roamed, visiting some of the world's least accessible places, and following the trail of clues left by our ancestors.
Written by Alice Roberts, 376 pages includes many black and white sketches by Alice Roberts and also contains many full colour pictures.
