In 2008, National Geographic Explorer and paleoanthropologist Lee Berger uncovered Australopithecus sediba, an early hominid ancestor who fell into a cavernous deathtrap nearly two million years ago. The discovery helped clarify (and complicate) the origins of modern humanity. Berger is back in the headlines with an even more monumental find — a new hominid species that made tools, art, and even buried its dead. This glimpse into the past held the potential to rewrite our family tree in real time and add to the story of our remarkable ancient ancestors. But first, Berger had to squeeze underground. Come along with him on a journey into the Cave of Bones.
