Caption: Australopithecus africanus reconstruction. Reconstruction (left to right) of the 'Mrs Ples' specimen of Australopithecus africanus. The fossil skull on which this reconstruction is based dates from around 2 million years ago and was discovered in Sterkfontein, South Africa, in 1947. It is not certain whether the skull is from a male or female. A. africanus is one of several extinct species forming an early part of the human evolutionary tree. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
