Sediba

Sediba Skull

New evidence suggests that Au.sediba is the best candidate for the genus Homo

The five papers (by Dr Lee Berger et al) will reveal new, important elements attributed to Au. Sediba, the two type skeletons - an analysis of the most complete hand ever described in an early hominin, the most complete undistorted pelvis ever discovered, the most accurate scan of an early human ancestors brain, new pieces of the foot and ankle, and one of the most accurate dates ever achieved for an early hominin site in Africa.
