As South Africa welcomes the world to the Soccer World Cup, I was reminded that the area not far from Johannesburg is The Cradle of Mankind.
This is where fossil evidence of early man has been found and more is still being discovered. The most recent fossil discovery was of a small female named Australopithecus sediba.
Of podiatric interest, the fossil known as “Little Foot” was also discovered in “The Cradle” as it is known.
Additional evidence found in “The Cradle” shows that the area – and the continent – once formed part of Gondwanaland.
If you want to know more, Google – Maropeng – and find out about your origins. Better still treat yourself to a day out at Maropeng, learn about your origins and see these fossils at close hand.
