Australopithecus africanus- (Southern Ape of Africa)
Not a very good name because the skull found in 1924 was not an ape and we
now know that the Australopithecus lived in many places besides Africa.
Earliest finds were in Ethiopia and Tanzania in Africa all we know is that
they walked upright on two legs and used tools. The First real people have
been found in Java, Beijing, other parts of Asia, Europe and Africa and
probably lived in caves. They used stone tools, hunted animals and learned
to work together cooperation key to their success.
