New Hominid from South Africa Fills Gap

Lee Burger has discovered a hominid specimen that fills some of the holes between australopithecines and early Homo. The article by Christopher Szabo, in Digital Journal notes:
The near complete skeleton was found by Professor Lee Burger of the University of the Witwatersrand (known locally as ”Wits”) in Johannesburg. He was exploring cave systems in the Sterkfontein region near Johannesburg in an area dubbed the ”Cradle of Humanity” for all the finds originating there.
More in a bit, I am sure.
