The Great Human Journey

$17.05 Member Price

The Great Human Journey: Around the World in 22 Million Days follows Museum Mice Wallace and Darwin on another exciting adventure! It's amazing what you can find in a Museum and how far you can travel in a small time machine made from a yoghurt cup. Have you ever wondered where we humans came from and how there are so many of us? The answers, as our mice will show you, lie everywhere including in our own DNA. So there is the big picture of The Great Human Journey from the middle of Aftrica to Australia, America and Asia and then there's the tiny picture too of molecules and cells that we can trace inside ourselves and our genome like long strings of letters that tell us where we came from and who our ancestors were, and where they were then and how they got there! Ages 4 to 8 years.
