Another New Type of Fossil Ape-man

  title={Another New Type of Fossil Ape-man},
  author={Robert . Broom},
SOME years ago, I pointed out that in my opinion the cave deposits in the dolomite of the Transvaal when fully worked will give us the remains of most stages of early man and pre-man that have inhabited South Africa from probably Middle Pliocene to Recent. In the Sterkfontein area alone there are apparently in about ten square miles more than a hundred different cave deposits, and many of these are of quite different ages judging by the faunas. Almost all the animals at Kromdraai main deposit… 

Diagnoses of East African Miocene Hominoidea

Owing to an inevitable delay in the publication of our monograph on the Miocene Hominoidea of East Africa (which is now in the press), it seems desirable for purposes of reference to record here the

Chapter 3 Description and Preliminary Analysis of New Hominid Craniodental Fossils from the Swartkrans Formation

Nearly 100 hominid craniodental fossils have been recovered from the Swartkrans Formation through recent excavations by C. K. Brain. Specimens derive from the Member 1 Hanging Remnant breccia, as

Brief communication: Gladysvale: first early hominid site discovered in South Africa since 1948.

This find makes the site the seventh in South Africa to yield australopithecine remains and the first new early hominid-bearing locality to be found in this region since 1948, and adds appreciably to the abundant Plio-Pleistocene fauna previously recorded from the cave deposit.

The australopiths were diverse, geographically widespread, and anatomically derived, they lived through periods of pronounced climate change, and their story dominates the narrative of human evolution for millions of years.
