In this video we discuss the archaeological history of one of our oldest human ancestors. None other than Orrorin tugenensis. This ancient hominid existed about 6 million years ago in Africa’s Great Rift Valley. Known only from 13 fossilized bone fragments, O. tugenensis shows postcranial evidence of Bipedalism in its highly intact thigh bone. Join me as I tell you everything you need to know about this ancient hominid species.

If you are interested in picking up your very own BAR 1002,00, you can find that bad boy here! It will be available for 48 hours and the first 100 takers get an autographed informational card for their trouble!
