Late last year we reported on the remarkable discovery of a new ancient human ancestor, Australopithecus sediba — a finding that re-wrote the science books. Further research revealed that they were tree dwelling creatures who liked to eat tree bark. But given the small clues they left behind, we didn’t have much else to go by — that is until now.
Scientists working in South Africa now claim to have uncovered the most complete skeleton yet of this human ancestor. Dated at 2 million years, the remains were found hidden in a rock that were excavated from an archeological site three years ago.
