It is with pleasure that we welcome our AoMs for October, Andrew Collins and Greg Little, co-authors of the new book, Denisovan Origins.

Little and Collins team up to provide a comprehensive account of the enigmatic Denisovans and their impact on the emergence of modern human society.

If they are correct in their findings, then they have discovered a missing chapter in our knowledge of the emergence of civilisation, both in the ancient world and in the Americas.
