'Ida', the most complete primate fossil ever found, was unearthed in Germany in 1982 and has revolutionized our understanding of the human family tree. The Link tells the story of Ida's rediscovery and the detective-work of scientists who have studied her, using the evidence of the surviving 'skin shadow' and stomach contents to create an evocative reconstruction of her life in the Eocene epoch 47 million years ago.
