New Human Species "Homo naledi" Discovered


Recommended Posts

My archaeological professor warned that big news was going to happen Thursday.


Info after class:


There is no date for the fossil so we don't know for sure where naledi falls in the timeline of human ancestors. It is suggested that it is almost a link between homo and the australopiths, but it could just be a variant of homo ergaster/erectus which wouldn't make this a new species. Meh


Also the geomorphology of the cave suggests the remains were placed there which means that whoever put them there needed to see in complete darkness which alludes to the naledi being able to use and control fire which would be big if they were before ergaster/erectus.
