            A leading paleontologist discovers the missing link in human evolution. Somewhere west of Munich, Madelaine B hme and her colleagues dig for clues to the origins of humankind. What they discover is beyond anything they imagined- the fossilised bones of Danuvius guggenmosi ignite ...a global media frenzy. This ancient ancestor defies our knowledge of human history - his nearly twelve-million-year-old bones were not located in Africa - the so-called birthplace of humanity - but in Europe, and his features suggest we evolved much differently than scientists once believed. In prose that reads like a gripping detective novel, Ancient Bones interweaves the story of the dig that changed everything with the fascinating answer to a previously undecided and now pressing question- How, exactly, did we become human? Placing B hme's discovery alongside former theories of human evolution, the authors show how this remarkable find (and others in Eurasia) are forcing us to rethink the story we've been told about how we came to be, a story that has been our guiding narrative - until now

            In 1820, after millennia spent speculating and searching, humans laid eyes on Antarctica for the very first time. Since then, our relationship with this enigmatic land of ice and has continually evolved, from one of industry during the sealing and whaling eras, to exploration as ...pioneers charted undiscovered coastlines and forged perilous paths towards the South Pole. Today, the human relationship with Antarctica is defined by scientific endeavour, international collaboration and luxury tourism. The bicentenary of the first human sighting of Antarctica is an opportunity to reflect on our Antarctic legacy as the latest scientific research reveals the startling impacts that climate change in Antarctica could have on a global scale. Discover this remarkable continent covered in ice, where days endure for months, highways are built by penguins and shimmering lights illuminate the night sky.
