Greatest Mysteries in Human Evolution: Solutions to Ancient Archaeological and Anthropological Anomalies uses the most updated research and data to examine human evolution and the unsolved answers of our evolutionary history. Written by an acclaimed pioneer in cognitive archaeology, this book begins with an assessment of Neanderthals, using historical and archaeological evidence to explore how and why they became extinct. It then moves to the scientific discovery of the Peking Man fossils and why the proof of a 700,000-year-old skull would try to be erased from evolutionary history.

The book also explores the first traces of the creation and evolution of language, communication, human abstract thinking, and tool creation, presenting an approachable and important resource for researchers and students in evolutionary biology, cognitive archaeology, and similar studies of human evolution.
