Using ever more refined techniques, scientists can now describe ancient landscapes and the early humans and animals once inhabiting them. The Bone Readers examines the facts and myths about the first human arrival in Australia and its region; what modern DNA tells us about the origin of Australian Aborigines; theories on the Indonesian hobbits’; and who or what killed off Australia’s giant marsupials. The findings from Australia and its neighbours are echoed in debates over the mysterious demise of the Neanderthals and shed light on human evolution. But, as ever, the scientists are divided. The Bone Readers exposes a hidden world of colourful characters and passionate debate and some truly weird ideas.
Not shy of controversy, The Bone Readers is bound to stir debate.

This excellent book not only clearly presents the science behind research on human origins, but also the personalities and the politics.’ Professor Chris Stringer FRS – The Natural History Museum, London
