A common characteristic of humans is a desire to know their roots. This is evident not only in the tracing of family ancestries, but in the excitement about and attention given to the study of the roots of our entire species - the study of human evolution. We have, over the past few million years, evolved from an ape-like ancestor to modern Homo sapiens. Like evolution in general, the fact of human evolution is as firmly established as anything in science. There are, however, differences among scientists concerning details of this process. In this paper I will give an historical overview and summary of our knowledge of human evolution, and will focus on current disagreements.
