Extra, Extra – Read All About It!

The anthropology nerd in me is having a field day. If you haven’t heard about the newly discovered hominid species, you should do yourself a favor and check this out. Basically, researchers have discovered an entirely new ancestor for the human race and it’s kind of a big deal.

I was here, once upon a time.

The fossils were found in a cave in South Africa and as someone who as been spelunking in a South African cave, I’m in shock and awe.  The cave I spent some time in is Sterkfontein and there have been innumerable valuable excavations done there as well. In fact, the two caves are fairly close (as in 30 minutes) to one another and the knowledge that fossils of such an importance were so close kind of blows my minds. On top of that – who else knows what’s in these deep caves? Such a cool thing to find and such an amazing addition to our history as a people.

Who knows what will happen next!
