About this book

Provides a comprehensive site-by-site compendium of uniform descriptions and original photographs of all fossils that document the human evolutionary past.

...very welcome addition to the evolutionary anthropologist's reference shelf... (Evolutionary Anthropology) "...This is a true thesaurus, in its literal meaning: a textbook to go back to several times for different scopes." (Nature, June 2002) "...a handsomely produced volume which will make a handy reference work for paleoanthropologists studying fossil cranial morphology." (American Journal of Human Biology, Vol. 15, No. 5, September/October 2003)
