Further Remains of the Sterkfontein Ape-man, Plesianthropus

Article metrics


At the beginning of April we restarted work at Sterkfontein in the search for more remains of Plesianthropus; and we were successful in getting remains of a number of individuals and a perfect skull of an elderly female, of which an announcement was made in Nature of May 17. Unfortunately, owing to a difference of opinion with the Historical Monuments Commission, further work was delayed for a month.
