This timeline is based on the latest research, depicting the development of man from early Australopithecines to modern day Hominids, using actual photographs.Updated to show the current research depicting our possible common ancestry with Neanderthalensis, this timeline also shows the climatic, continental changes, and the development of tool technology.
