The fossils are among nearly 1,700 bones and teeth retrieved from a nearly inaccessible cave near Johannesburg.

The fossil trove was created, scientists believe, by Homo naledi repeatedly secreting the bodies of their dead companions in the cave.
Analysis of the fossils -- part of a project known as the Rising Star Expedition -- was led in part by paleoanthropologist John Hawks, professor of anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The findings were displayed during a media preview at the Wits bone vault at the Evolutionary Studies Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
