The new Homo naledi scientific papers

The world-renowned team of researchers who unveiled a new hominin species to the world in 2015, have published three new papers about the landmark discovery Homo naledi.

The research, published today in three papers in the journal eLife (elifesciences.org), presents the long-awaited age of the naledi fossils from the Dinaledi chamber and announces the new discovery of a second chamber in the Rising Star cave system, containing additional specimens of Homo naledi.
