In 2015, the bones from a total of 15 individuals had been found inside the Rising Star Cave system near Johannesburg, South Africa, alongside thousands of bone fragments – the largest number ever found at a single site. The Cave contained a new hominin species named Homo naledi by the scientists who described it. The age of the original Homo naledi remains from the Dinaledi Chamber has been revealed to be startlingly young in age. Homo naledi, which was first announced in September 2015, was alive sometime between 335 and 236 thousand years ago. This places this population of primitive small-brained hominins at a time and place that it is likely they lived alongside Homo sapiens. This is the first time that it has been demonstrated that another species of hominin survived alongside the first humans in Africa. Read more on newscientist.com
