What were our earliest human ancestors like? The author, who was a director of the Transvaal Museum, Pretoria, presents an alternative analysis of the fossil sites in South Africa, showing that the early hominids were hunted by big cat predators. His research provided the guidelines for taphonomic reconstruction that helped future excavation of sites. Numerous illustrations, distribution maps and b&w photographs.
