Caption: Dr Robert Broom. Sculpture of the Scottish palaeoanthropologist Dr Robert Broom (1866-1951) looking at an early hominid skull. Broom found numerous hominid fossils in the caves of South Africa, which he assigned to the subfamily Australopithecinae. Raymond Dart had first described this group in 1925. His claim that it represented the earliest ancestor of man was ridiculed until Broom's discoveries confirmed that the group was bipedal, erect, had man-like dentition and relatively small brains. Photographed at Sterkfontein Caves, South Africa.
