ORIGINS: FOSSILS FROM THE CRADLE OF HUMANKIND
Perot Museum 
Museum hours.

This rare exhibition will also mark the first time that ancient hominin fossils have traveled for public display since “Lucy” (Australopithecus afarensis) between 2007 and 2013. Discovered in 2008 by then 9-year-old Matthew Berger, Au. sediba were some of the most complete hominin skeletons known in the fossil record at the time. Just five years later, the first fossils of another new ancient relative, H. naledi (formally described in 2015), were dramatically unearthed in South Africa by a Wits University team including the Perot Museum’s Dr. Becca Peixotto, Director and Research Scientist of the Center for the Exploration of the Human Journey. Together, these two remarkable discoveries provide further compelling evidence for the complex and nuanced processes of human evolution.
