Scientists say they
discovered a new member of human family tree. It's a discovery that rocked the archaeological world. scientists working at Moropeng, the site outside Johannesburg known as the
'Cradle of Humankind,' discovered a mass underground cave housing the remains
of hundreds of individuals that the researchers say belong to a new species of
the human family.
Researchers named the creature Homo naledi. That reflects the
"Homo" evolutionary group, which includes modern people and our
closest extinct relatives.
