Great Mysteries of Human Evolution

Recent discoveries and new technologies have resulted in a richer understanding of human evolution. Along with this understanding new theories arise as to why we walk upright, when we first used tools and the human kinship to Neanderthals. Much of what we know about these prehistoric beings is based on analysis of skulls and skull fragments. From these hard structures, scientists can infer traits that range from dietary preference to mental capability.
