What is a human?
The incredible story of how we became us and why the other human species vanished.

The incredible story of how we became us and why the other human species vanished.

How many human species lived before Homo sapiens – and how did they live? What kind of houses did they live in? What did they eat? How did they survive the cold winters or the hot climate? What did they wear and what did their children play with? And how have researchers managed to find out about all these things?

In this book, researcher and archaeologist Vibeke Viestad goes through the history of humanity, conveying knowledge about how inventive humans have been over the ages. The book is funny with brightly coloured illustrations by Helena Lindholm, known for the Kokotopia books.
