Available in Stock
The Pleistocene, which lasted from 2.6 million to around 12,000 years ago, is the geologic epoch that saw the rise of human ancestors, the hominins. This book describes the conditions that made that world, the themes that define it and the creature that emerged from it. At the same time, it tells the story of the cultural idea of the Pleistocene, how we came to discover and interpret it, and how it helps to define our own modern world.
