You will also learn about the evolution of other animals, such as elephants and horses, during the 65 million years that have passed since the extinction of the dinosaurs.

On the journey, you will meet eleven naturalistic models of early human ancestors. You can also study the role played by climate and environment in determining the course of our history.

Go on a trip of discovery through life, among monkeys, sabertooth cats, mammoths and other stunning creatures. Travel with the first adventurers on their journey out of Africa.

Consider what makes us human. Reflect on where we came from.
And where we are going.
