February 12, 2015

Smithsonian's Human Origins Program

The new traveling exhibition tells the story of how humans, or Homo sapiens, are descended from a complex tree of upright walking ancestors, including species from the genera Ardipithecus, Australopithecus and Paranthropus. “Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean to Be Human?” was developed by the Smithsonian Institution and American Library Association and will appear at 19 public libraries across the country between April 2015 and April 2017.
