Thin on the Ground: Neandertal Biology, Archeology and Ecology



© 2014 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. For us, the experience of reading Steve Churchill's book Thin on the Ground: Neandertal Biology, Archeology, and Ecology was like that of reading The Origin of Species for the first time. In both Churchill's and Darwin's books, the reader is led carefully and meticulously through a beautifully organized presentation of all the evidence bearing on a vexed and long-standing problem, arriving at a novel answer that resolves many issues all at once. Like Darwin, Churchill makes his case with such a wide-ranging, comprehensive, and judicious presentation that when the overall conclusion is fully laid out in the last chapter, its force is inescapable.
