Detail of the Marks on a Fossilized Rib Bone. This is a detail of the marks on a fossilized rib bone, one of the two controversial bones. "The best match we have for the marks, using currently available data, would still be butchery with stone tools," says Emory University anthropologist Jessica Thompson.

Mary Leakey was a British archaeologist and anthropologist, who discovered the first fossilized Proconsul skull, an extinct ape now believed to be ancestral to humans. For much of her career she worked together with her husband, Louis Leakey, in Olduvai Gorge, uncovering the tools and fossils of ancient hominines. She developed a system for classifying the stone tools found at Olduvai. She also discovered the Laetoli footprints. #womeninscience

A New View of Evolution by sciencemag:  This is a 1.77-million-year-old complete adult skull (braincase volume: 546 cubic centimeters) of early Homo from the site of Dmanisi, Georgia. Together with the fossilized bones of four additional individuals discovered in close proximity, the skull indicates that populations of early Homo comprised a wider range of morphological variation than traditionally assumed, which implies a single evolving lineage... #Science #Human_Evolution

Early humans began spreading from Africa to other parts of the world by about 1.8 million years ago. Within 100,000 years, they reached China. This discovery was made by Human Origins Program researchers working in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Hubei Institute of Cultural Relics. At excavation sites in China’s Nihewan Basin, the team found stone tools like this hammerstone, evidence of animal butchery, and animal footprints.

430,000-Year-Old Murder Mystery: Broken Skull Hints at Earliest Homicide: The skull, belonging to a primitive member of the Neanderthal lineage, was found in an apparent funerary site down a shaft in the appropriately bleak-sounding Sima de los Huesos, Spanish for "Pit of the Bones," in the Atapuerca mountains. The skull shows that our species, Homo sapiens, cannot claim a monopoly on murder.
