40,000 years ago, we were not the only species of human in the world.There were at least four others, including the Neanderthals, who occupied Europe, the Near East and parts of Eurasia; the enigmatic Homo floresiensis, or 'Hobbits', from the island of Flores; and Homo luzonesis, found in the Philippines, and even more diminutive than the Hobbits at less than four feet high. And then there are the Denisovans, discovered thanks to cutting-edge science in 2010 in a cave in Siberia. At the forefront of this ground-breaking discovery was Oxford professor Tom Higham.

Siddhartha Book Description :

When All Roads Lead to Nirvana The word Siddhartha is made up of two words in the Sanskrit language, siddha (achieved) ] artha (what was searched for), which together means ""he who has found meaning (of existence)"" or ""he who has attained his goals."" In fact, the Buddha's own name, before his renunciation, was Siddhartha Gautama, Prince of Kapilvastu. In this book, the Buddha is referred to as ""Gotama."" In Hesse's novel, experience, the totality of conscious events of a human life, is shown as the best way to approach understanding of reality and attain enlightenment - Hesse's crafting of Siddhartha's journey shows that understanding is attained not through intellectual methods, nor through immersing oneself in the carnal pleasures of the world...
