What I'm reading Got The Jesuit and the Skull: Teilhard de Chardin, Evolution, and the Search for Peking Man a few days ago. I'm only on Chapter 3 right now and it's not bad. So far a bunch of it has been reviewing Darwin and evolution so I've learned nothing new there. I only know the basic story of Teilhard and the Peking Man fossil story so I'm hoping to get more detail. The reviews at the link don't make it look promising though.

I'm already a bit miffed that Choukoutien was so close to Beijing and I didn't go see it. Oh well.

Will have a longer review when I'm finished.

I also got the latest issue of American Scientist. Sadly, the only archaeology-related article is sub-only.
