A set of bones that belong to a skeleton that dates back 3.6 million years has been uncovered! Scientists have been working to put together the bones that are now known as "Little Foot" and have now introduced them to the world!

It is an incredible story about how these bones were finally discovered and may shed some light on the ancestry of humans.

According to MetroSource News:

The near-complete skeleton named for its small foot bones is the oldest hominid skeleton ever found in South Africa's so-called Cradle of Humankind.
The more recent discovery of Little Foot reinforces the belief that South Africa was a major cradle of human evolution, with diverse hominid ancestors.
