Caption: Palaeoanthropologist analysing fossils. Jacopo Moggi-Cecchi of the University of the Witwatersrand analysing fossils discovered by Andre Keyser in 1994. Two Australopithecus robustus skulls, including the almost complete skull and lower jaw of a female and a male mandible, were discovered at the Drimolen cave in South Africa. Their estimated age is between 1.5 and 2.0 million years old, and the species would have lived successfully for nearly a million years alongside species with our own genus, Homo. Photographed in 1999.
