Caption: Illustration of the skull of the extinct hominin Homo naledi, identified from fossils discovered in 2013 in the Rising Star Cave system, South Africa. In 2017 it was announced that the fossils date to between 300,000 and 200,000 years old. This is much later than was expected due to traits such as a small brain size. It is therefore unlikely to be a direct ancestor of modern humans, which evolved around 200,000 years ago. It is thought that an adult male was around 150 centimetres tall and weighed around 45 kilograms. It stood upright and was fully bipedal.
