A team of scientists lead by professor Lee Berger fro wits university believe they have discovered an entirely new species of human relative .this fact alone makes the discovery remarkable the Homo naledi fossil was found in the rising star Caves in the Cradle of human kind , in a virtually unnecessary underground chamber.(Ewn.co.za). scientists believe that they may be hundreds of or even thousand more fossilized remains still waiting to be discovered at the site. H.naledi is smaller and much older than the average human with curved fingers and smaller skull. however the species is very similar to humankind which makes this discovery significant. scientists believe that H.naledi may have internationally put the bodies of its dead together in the chamber , which is seen as a ritualized behavior unique to humans . this is imported to note that scientists are able to use this information to place Homo naledi is, which makes it difficult to slot the species into the tree of life.
