Well! Here we are again, finally! I am so glad to welcome you to our next Morphology video, the next episode in our show The Story of Us, and I hope you enjoy your time and learn a great deal! If you do, let other people know about us! We post new content, and keep up on the news all of the time!
On this episode, we explore the fossil KNM-ER 1813, one of, if not the best and most well known Homo habilis cranium. The following is a brief description provided by the Human Origins Institute:
Read what esteemed Paleoanthropologist John Hawks has to say not he matter, and especially in relation to another species that we did not discuss today, A. sediba that actually just made headlines last week with the announcement of the first near complete lower spine of a hominin found! You can read all about that in our “News” section, so be sure to check that too! Catch his blog post here: https://johnhawks.net/weblog/fossils/habilis/er/er-1813-africanus-malapa-2010.html!
I would like to remind everyone that this is but an introductory video/ post to this species, there is of course so much more to learn and discover about this species, that even the experts in the field are not sure about yet! Please, do your own research, allow this only to be one of many tools in your kit, as you learn about Human Origins, and the roots of our shared humanity! We will be going more in depth about this species, and this particular specimen at a later time. But for now, I hope that this will suffice as a good introduction to habilis, and that you have indeed learned something from my efforts!
