A 2 million year old skull found in South Africa provides more information about human evolution, according to BBC’s Chinese website.
According to the report, the skull came from parahomo robusta, a close relative of Homo erectus, which is believed to be the direct ancestor of modern humans. The two species lived at the same time, but the robustris became extinct earlier.

The team said the new findings were exciting. “Most of the fossils are scattered teeth, so it’s very rare and very lucky to find them,” says Angeline Leece, PhD.
In 2018, researchers at the University of Melbourne found the skull fragment at the archaeological site of drimolen, north of Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2015, a child Homo erectus skull was found a few meters away from the site.
Then, archaeologists have pieced together and analyzed the fossils in the past few years. Their findings were published in the November 10, 2020 issue of the journal Nature Ecology and evolution.
