Almost Human delves into Lee Berger’s discovery of Homo naledi

Almost Human

In 2013, acclaimed paleontologist, Lee Berger, came across a cache of bones in an underground cave on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Three years later Berger and his team were able to introduce a whole new species to the world: homo naledi.

Almost Human is an accessible and informative non-fiction narrative, wherein Berger covers discoveries, science, exploration, and – ultimately – what it means to be human.

Not only will Berger’s written account of his extensive experience in exploring the origins of humankind serve as an introduction to our ancestors; it will give you a rare peek into the life of a truly visionary homo sapiens.
