Scientists uncover 'pre-human' skeleton in South Africa

Archaeologists have identified the most complete skeleton related to an ancient relative of human in a rock in South Africa, which dates back to two million years ago.

Scientists uncovered that the findings were the remains of a juvenile hominid skeleton, of the Australopithecus (southern ape) sediba species.

The remains are the "most complete early human ancestor skeleton ever discovered," according to University of Witwatersrand paleontologist and a lead professor in the finding Lee Berger.
