Summary
"Fairweather Eden is the story, through the eyes of those involved, of over ten years of archeological excavations at Boxgrove in England, the world's best-preserved early human site. Beyond the discovery of the human remains themselves, the site revealed a unique treasure of tools and fossils left behind by our earliest ancestors in an archeological context which provided many astonishing clues. Boxgrove Man, it emerges, lived in a "Fairweather Eden" in a warm period during the Ice Age, together with lions, rhinos, elephants, and wolves. The story the fossils and artifacts eventually told opened a unique window on life as it was lived by early humans in Europe half a million years ago."--BOOK JACKET
