Stages of anthropogenesis (Human evolution)
Humans have always pondered how and where they fit in the chain of life on this earth. Aristotle was the first who dared to compare humans with animals, placing them in the animal kingdom.
Taking advantage of the latest findings in anthropology and other branches of science, the exhibition presents a brief overview of the evolution of man starting with the most ancient primates and ending with modern man along with commentary on possible human ancestors. Characteristic of each stage of human evolution different items are presented – tools, bones and skulls, sculptures.
Modern humans, the Neoanthropus, appeared almost 200 thousand years ago and 35,000 years ago they already inhabited the entire earth’s surface. Since that time all humans have been biologically classified as Homo sapiens sapiens, but various races and racial types exist within this classification.
In order to better understand the human body, the exhibition offers both skeletons as well as specimens of inner organs.
