At Hominid Hunting, we’ll consider the age-old question “Where do we come from?” by digging into the human fossil record and interpreting the clues recorded in our DNA. We’ll explore the science behind the latest discoveries, imagine how our ancestors lived and ponder the people, places and controversies that have shaped our understanding of human evolution.
Hominid Hunting is written by Erin Wayman, an assistant editor at Smithsonian magazine. After spending a month in Ecuador dodging peccaries and looking for capuchin monkeys that didn’t want to be found, she decided writing about anthropologists was better than being one. She has master’s degrees in biological anthropology and science writing. Her favorite hominid fossil is the Taung Child, the first Australopithecus fossil ever found.
