Description:

The Cradle of Humankind tells us more about the history of our earliest ancestors than any place of comparable size elsewhere in the world. A Guide to Sterkfontein and the Cradle of Humankind describes how the puzzle fits together, and allows the reader to gain an understanding of the discoveries made in this World Heritage Site, and their significance in the evolutionary chain of life. It features the many important fossilised remains found there, explains how caves and fossils are formed, and introduces the reader to the extinct mammals that once roamed the plains of the area.
