Homo Sapiens: Child of the Ice Age

12/29/2015 12:10:00 AM

An interactive journey that begins over four million years ago, where we are introduced to our pre-Ice Age ancestor, Ardipithecus ramidus, living in the treetops of an Ethiopian forest. Travel along a timeline to see how humans evolved into bipedal form as Homo habilis, then Homo erectus, and finally Homo sapiens, surviving despite drastic climate changes and mass extinctions. The journey is rich with images, text, and videos, and a world map shows how the global climate is changing at each stage. Navigate by returning to the climate map and timeline, or by advancing through image buttons at the base of the page.
