July 2001, in the Djourab desert of North Chad. Culminating more than twenty years of work, Michel Brunet, director of the French-Chadian Paleaonthropological Mission announced the discovery of our oldest human ancestor recorded to date. The creature, better known as Toumai, is seven million years old and has just "crash-landed" in the world of the living. The entire history of humankind is thrown into question.
