Adventures in Learning (AIL) launches its monthly Science Pub series with Homo Naledi: A New Human Ancestor from the Cradle of Humankind. Associate Professor of anthropology at Dartmouth College and a specialist in locomotion of early apes and human ancestors, Dr. Jeremy DeSilva discusses his role working with lead investigators in identifying a previously unknown human ancestor in 2013.  As featured in the November 2015  issue of National Geographic, the discovery of over 1,600 fossils in a South African cave added a new branch to the “bush” of human evolution.
