A physical anthropologist at NYU and the Center for the Study of Human Origins, Shara Bailey delves into the the history of human evolution. She asks:
—What hominin species existed before modern humans—or even co-existed with us?
—How did our human ancestors change as they evolved? How are we different, and where were the earliest Homo sapiens found?
—What can 3-D imaging, confocal microscopy, computer modeling, and genetic analysis of bones and teeth tell us about the lives, childhoods, and diets of our ancient ancestors?
Before & After—Sip our early-modern cocktail, the Paleo Riot
—Bone up! Stick around for the taxonomically challenged Q&A
—Stomp to Anthropocene grooves
