Cradle and Sterkfontein Caves
Groundbreaking: Site of dramatic discoveries that changed the way we view humanity and the history of human development.
World-renowned: New scientific exhibition showcases the finds of hominid fossils “Mrs Ples” and “Little Foot” The new scientific exhibition centre showcases a reconstruction of a mined cave – versus a pristine cave – cave formations and geology, early life forms, mammals and hominid fossils, among other topics. It describes in detail important finds such as “Mrs Ples”, the “Taung Child” and “Little Foot”, as well as providing information about 9 fossilization, palaeobotany and landscapes.
Within the 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 Australopithecus 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.
Archaeological finds within the Cradle of Humankind also include 2-million-year-old stone tools. The oldest recorded, at Swartkrans, near the Sterkfontein Caves, is a collection of 270 burnt bones that reveal how our ancestors learned to master fire more than 1-million years ago – a significant development and an early technological innovation. The ability to do this has taken us from the basic skills needed to keep ourselves warm and to cook our food, to being able to control and harness the power of fire to the extent that we can now create and burn rocket fuel to reach space and beyond.
