New dating of South Africa’s most famous hominid fossil confirms it is older than widely thought, boosting the country’s claim to be a home of humankind, scientists said on Wednesday.

Named “Little Foot,” the skeletal remains are those of a small ape-like creature who fell into a pit in South Africa’s Sterkfontein cave complex millions of years ago.
