Overview

In this dramatic reconstruction of the daily lives of the earliest tool-making humans, two leading anthropologists reveal how the first technologies— stone, wood, and bone tools— forever changed the course of human evolution.

Based on the authors' unique mix of archaeology and practical experiments, ranging from making their own stone tools to theorizing about the origins of human intelligence, Making Silent Stones Speak brings the latest ideas about human evolution to life.
