Human evolution


In this part of the exhibition you can learn more about the different human species. It starts with one of the oldest, Sahelanthropus tchadensis, and leads all the way to Homo sapiens which is the only remaining human species.

Our understanding of human origins is constantly evolving. For each new fossil find, another piece of the puzzle is inserted into the large network of data collected about our ancestors. Scientists will continue to make new discoveries that provide deeper insights into human evolution.
