Homo Sapiens - The Birth of a New Man

Top of page

Around 300,000 years ago, a new human species appeared: HOMO SAPIENS. How did it come about, what were its origins, which conditions favoured its emergence? Was there just one line or did the new species appear in several places at once? What differentiated it from its ancestors? What were the first great discoveries of Homo sapiens?
The first burial places: what do they tell us? The emergence of beliefs and superstitions. The development of Homo sapiens' formidable creative imagination.
