Paleoanthropologist Isaiah Nengo conducts fieldwork there to search for the ancestors of apes and humans in Africa. Among his groundbreaking discoveries: the 13 million-year-old infant ape skull nicknamed Alesi—the most complete primate skull in the history of the field. Join Nengo for a glimpse into the intriguing, wide-ranging implications of his research and discover the surprising twists and turns of our human story along the way.
