Fossils from the Sterkfontein site, South Africa. Fossils of cranial and mandible bones discovered at the ancient archaeological cave. In the 1930s, excavations recovered fragments of hominids, eventually assigned to the Australopithecus africanus species. Australopithecus africanus is an extinct bipedal hominid and lived between 3.3 and 2.4 million years ago. On the computer screen a tooth has been scanned in order that the thickness of the enamel may be analysed. Photographed at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.
