Today 5/5/15 this blog celebrates its first year. As quick summary, I will not give boring details but just a brief list of what was the best of the year and what can be improved… (in my opinion)
I count on you all for this second year that starts today !!!

The series of posts
I like them much as a concept, and I would like to write more series of posts, but I am not fully convinced yet… It is said that ‘sequels are never any good’. This first year I have posted 3 series:
- About Fire: 1-Las evidencias más antiguas de control del fuego & 2-Criaturas del Fuego
- About Lucy: 1-¿Qué nos falta por saber de Lucy? & 2-El rostro de Lucy
- About the neandertal findings in the Madrid region: 1-Neandertales en el sur de Madrid & 2-Neandertales en el norte de Madrid
On September 2014 I started writing quarterly or monthly summaries of the latest news. Fortunately, the ‘boom’ of news in the field of human evolution is spectacular in the last times, but unfortunately… I could not keep up!
Two posts with few visits (but I like them much!)
