Many thought that the time for field exploration in the search for human origins was over. Then in 2013, paleoanthropologist and National Geographic Explorer-In-Residence Lee Berger made a remarkable discovery: While exploring the Rising Star cave system in South Africa, his team stumbled upon one of the greatest fossil discoveries in the past half century. They found a new species of human ancestor that could very well change the way we think about human ancestry and evolution.
