Teaser Tuesday - The Link


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The very first people who were more or less like ourselves - who would not have attracted too many stares on today's public transportation - date from about five hundred thousand years ago. The earlier types are commonly called archaic, and some of them are ascribed to their own species, such as Homo heidelbergensis.
- The Link by Colin Tudge with Josh Young, p 199


I would also like to put in a plug for the History Channel's programme about Ida, the 47-million-year-old fossil described in The Link. It was a very well-done show, entertaining, too, so if you can watch it on a re-airing or via Internet you should do so.
