Sterkfontein Caves

Sterkfontein Caves, Cradle of Humankind: Robert Broom Within these caves, scientists have discovered many hominid and other animal fossils, dating back more than 4-million years, to the birth of humanity. The most important and most famous of these fossils are "Mrs Ples", a 2.1-million-year-old Plesianthopus skull, and "Little Foot", an almost complete Australopithecus skeleton that is more than 3-million years old.

These fossils, both found in the Sterkfontein Caves in the Cradle of Humankind, tell us much about the precursors of modern humans, Homo sapiens.

Maropeng Visitor Center

Maropeng Visitor Center An exciting, world-class exhibition, focusing on the development of humans and our ancestors over the past few million years.

On arrival, you will see a massive burial mound called the Tumulus, which is your entrance to learning the secrets of our ancestry. Along the pathway to the Tumulus building, stop to have a look at the site of an archaeological excavation. The Stone Age site has been excavated since October 2005 by scientists from the University of the Witwatersrand. The early stone tools from this area are from the Acheulean period, and include handaxes and cleavers.

Early humans, and their ancestors, migrated into the Maropeng area. They used the local rocks for tool-making, as they were hunter-gatherers. The technology of these found tools suggests that they were made some time between 1.0 and 0.5 million years ago during the Earlier Stone Age, before the appearance of modern Homo sapiens. The universe was formed about 14-billion years ago. The Earth is about 4.6-billion years old.

- Life first emerged about 3.8-billion years ago. Our exploratory journey begins in South Africa, where fossils of some of the earliest known life forms on Earth are found.

- All of humanity shares an African heritage. We are one, diverse species across the globe, with our roots in Africa.
