An ancient skull is unearthed in Ethiopia by fossil hunters. According to them, it could be a “missing link” between Homo erectus and modern people. The skull could be between 500,000 and 250,000 years old! Discovered at Gawis in Ethiopia’s north-eastern, the cranium was found in two pieces.
At the site, stone tools and fossilized animals including two types of pigs, zebras, elephants, antelopes, cats, and rodents were also found.
Sileshi Semaw, an Ethiopian research scientist at the Stone Age Institute at Indiana University, US, told a news conference in Addis Ababa that the skull appeared “to be intermediate between the earlier Homo erectus and the later Homo sapiens.”
