  • Scientists studying the Drimolen Cave Complex, a place full of informative fossils, provide new evidence that human evolution was not a linear process.
  • This, and other studies that have been posted in recent weeks, shows that there were several types of ancient hominins living together in Africa.
  • One of the findings shows that homo erectus, previously assumed to come from Eastern Africa, actually lived in South Africa, too.
  • Homo erectus may have been the first species to migrate out of Africa into the rest of the world, and studies like this help us understand how it happened.
