Realistic Reconstructions of Human Ancestors

 Using remains and samples from all over the world and from many different time eras, scientists have been able to make reconstructions of what, they think, are our ancient fathers. If this is true, these pictures can show us how our kind has changed over the years. What a long amazing way we might have gone through to get to where we are today, and who knows what might still ahead of us.
