The Descent of Man

June 8, 2015 With Robert Martin and James Phillips

Is Homo Sapiens (ourselves) directly descended from some prior species? If so, it would probably be “Homo Neanderthalis.” That is the question with which this fine discussion¬†from 2004¬†begins. One of the participants is a biological scientist and the other is engaged in archeological anthropology and both have spent heir careers on trying to track the long geneology of our species.
