I know it has been a few weeks since we have finished chapter 1 First Humans. But, seeing this when I came into school today reminded me of the Richard Leakey quote that is in our text:
“Theories on prehistory and early man constantly change as new evidence comes to light.”This discovery is pretty amazing. Amazing because so much of it is perfectly preserved. Check out the video: Watch the "Link" Video
Quotes from the clip:
"It's hard to think of anything else in primate evolution that is as complete as this fossil."
"It's really an important specimen..." "It's really a rosetta stone." "The most complete fossil primate ever." "This is like a holy grail for paleontologists."
