Dr Lee Berger and his Rising Star team have found what will possibly become, the archeological find of the century. A brand new hominid, but also, literally, THE missing link between the Astrolpithicines and the genus Homo. i.e. the very first Human.

But there was more to Lee’s extraordinary announcement – the appearance that this small, probably bipedal ape, buried its dead consciously with a pre-thought out burial site – deep within a cave – two million years ago! It has shaken anthropology, paleoanthropology and evolutionary studies to its core.

And the best is that the fossils were found 45 minutes from our offices in Johannesburg! Well done dear Prof Berger for really making a life-changing event come true…
