The Nariokotome Homo Erectus Skeleton

Product Details

Promotional Information

What impressed me most about the volume is that, apart from the basic description of the fossil, which itself is of great importance, the editors have sought out leading experts to tackle problems relating to specific issues in the evolutionary biology of Homo erectus. Many of these chapters would stand alone as major contributions. Together, they make a remarkable volume. -- R. A. Foley, University of Cambridge

About the Author

Alan Walker is Professor of Anthropology at Pennsylvania State University. A Royal Society and MacArthur fellow, he is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 1996, he and Pat Shipman won the prestigious Rhone-Poulenc Award for The Wisdom of the Bones.


Walker and Leakey's book brings together contributions by experts in paleobiology, geology, anatomy, anthropology and ecology. It is a stunning detective story, and a satisfying demonstration of the power of the scientific method to give flesh to the past. -- Chet Raymo Boston Globe The information provided by the various studies reported in this volume is of immense value to our knowledge of human evolutionary history. The authors and editors have provided a model for descriptive and comparative analyses against which all subsequent endeavors will be measured. In my opinion, this work will stand as one of the classics of paleoanthropology. -- Fred H. Smith Science
