A Look at Some New Ideas About Our Ancestors

by Catherine Friedl
March 2000

In recent years, there has been much new research all shaking what was the paradigm of the twentieth century in terms of what we thought of our ancestors. Molecular clocks, DNA dating, microfossil research - the list goes on, and with each turning leaf more questions than answers are found.
This "exhibit" will focus on new ideas about the environment which caused the emergence of our genus Homo.

There is no one single hypothesis out there which can profess to explain it all. Hopefully, this exhibit will provide some new, and different ways of thinking about our evolutionary history.
