A short film outlining what we know about human evolution, introducing some members of the extended human family. The film includes a timeline and snippets of information about each hominid species. As far as possible the information is correct,(1) but any comments and criticisms will be welcomed. The music is by sigur ros.

The species included are;

Sahelanthropus tchadensis
Orrorin tugenensis
Kenyanthropus platyops
Australopithecus Afarensis (Wrongly labeled)
Australopithecus Africanus
Australopithecus boisei
Homo habilis
Homo ergaster
Homo erectus
Homo heidelbergensis
Homo neanderthalensis
Homo floresiensis
Homo sapiens

(1) The A affarensis skull pictured is listed as AL 333, this is not accurate. It should have been AL 444-2 . Many thanks to majordistruction for the correction.
