Details

Lydia Pyne tells the stories of seven human fossils found between 1908 and 2008, each of which won a different kind of fame or notoriety. She explains their significance for our understanding of human evolution and investigates how and why such scientific discoveries have ‘become written into popular culture’, including the specimen named ‘Lucy’ after a Beatles song and the surprisingly long-lasting Piltdown Man hoax. Off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
