The recent and incredible discovery of the human ancestor Homo naledi is changing the field of paleoanthropology. Biological anthropologist Marina Elliott, a 2016 National Geographic emerging explorer and the first scientist to enter the cave chamber after the initial bones were found, takes the stage to talk about what is was like to squeeze through the cramped cave system to reach the remains and how this remarkable discovery is changing the way we think about our human origins.
