SYNOPSIS: Incorporating archaeology, paleontology, and geology, Haywood, author and editor of several books on ancient and medieval history, including Penguin Historical Atlas of the Vikings (Penguin, 1995), traces the origins of humankind from earliest appearance as a primitive hominid able to use tools through the emergence of civilization, as defined by the development of social organization and the acquisition of material culture. Every page of his book contains photographs or illustrations to highlight the text, which chronicles the peopling of the earth and our development from hunters and gatherers to farmers and, ultimately, to a fully emerged society.
