Australopithecus Sediba could be direct ancestor of Homo.  Last year Lee Berger from the University of the Witwatersrand and his team discovered the skeletal remains of two specimens they determined to be a new species of human called Australopithecus sediba. The skeletons had characteristics of previous species of Australopithecus, leading the researchers to believe they may have found an evolutionary connection between the two.

Fossil discovery could be our oldest human ancestor -- The discovery was made after researchers conducted further dating of the early human fossils, Australopithecus sediba, found in South Africa last year.

This undated image provided by Lee R. Berger and the University of the Witwatersrand shows a reconstructed skull and jaw of Australopithecus sediba. The newly-studied species lived some 2 million years ago, and it both climbed in trees and walked upright. Scientists are getting a more comprehensive look at the extinct South African creature with an intriguing mix of human-like and primitive traits, but scientists say they still haven't pinned down where it fits on our evolutionary family…

“Born in Thokoza, South Africa, Marasela studied at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, where she obtained a BA Fine Arts degree in 1998. In 2003 she started a project titled Theodorah comes to Johannesburg, a durational performance based on her mother Theodorah’s stories about travels from the rural area of Mvenyane to Johannesburg, a journey of 11 hours. Like many young black women in the city, her mother was traumatised by events that took place in apartheid South Africa…
