So what was it?
Since I’m getting this blog off the ground again, I think I must clear up some old business. Firstly I’ve already dealt with my nomenclatural blunder in the previous post. Readers may also remember this picture from the old DracovenatorPictured is my wife, Celeste, as a newly appointed preparator to the IHE (Institute for Human Evolution) working away at a hush-hush important fossil that had to be deleted from the picture. So what was it?
……the holotype skull of Australopithecus sediba. Its not every day that your handy-work is displayed on the front cover of Science. Well done Celeste! (Yes, I know I’m three months late on this post).
