New dating suggests younger age for Homo naledi
This study suggests that Homo naledi lived more recently than first thought  but the dating method is unusual. Paleoanthropologist Mana Dembo of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada, and her colleagues propose that evolutionary trees of ancient hominids statistically reconstructed from skull and tooth measurements indicate that H. naledi lived around 912,000 years ago. That's a provisional estimate, since researchers have yet to date either H. naledi's bones or the sediment in which some of its remains were excavated. Link:
