250,000-Year-Old Skull of Child Found in Cave in South Africa

November 7, 2021

This child roamed the earth 250,000 years ago. Researchers in South Africa recently found this fossilized skull is from a young Homo naledi. They named her Letimela, which means “the lost one” and they say she was between 4 and 6 years old when she died during the Middle Pleistocene era, which started 335 thousand years ago. The discovery was made in a cave 30 miles away from Johannesburg, where other Homo naledi remains have been found. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.
