The skeleton of Australopithecus was displayed to the public in 2017, and it’s unique not only in its age (which is about 3.6 million years) but in the fact that it’s almost unbroken. Its reconstruction showed scientists that Australopithecus is much closer to the skeleton of modern man than was considered previously. It was found in the Sterkfontein Caves in South Africa, and, according to experts, it was a girl who fell off a cliff.
