Made in Africa: Hominin explorations and the Australian skeletal evidence

Stephen G. Webb

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review


This volume outlines the migration of early hominins and modern humans. It attempts to detail how, why and when those migrations took place and the routes they took. The book includes a description of Australia's earliest human skeletal remains.

Made in Australia: Hominin Explorations and the Australian Skeletal Evidence describes the largest collection of Australian fossils, representing modern humans at the end of their 20,000 km journey from Africa, and also documenting this great find before they are reburied on the request of the Aboriginal community. Part One provides an overview of modern humans, and how we see the construct of human evolution over the last two and half million years. Parts Two and Three focus on Australia and the evidence of its earliest people from the late Pleistocene and the Willandra Lake Collection from a photographic and descriptive perspective.
