In 1995, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Meave Leakey and her group made a vital disclosure at Lake Turkana, Kenya. They viewed fossils of what turned out as an Australopithecus anamensis. The disclosure shows that the date of the event of bipedalism should have been moved back by a large portion of 1,000,000 years, to around 4.2 million years prior. This was not the primary major paleoanthropologic disclosure at Lake Turkana. In 1972, Bernard Ngenyeo, partner to Richard and Meave Leakey, found the fossil of a Homo habilis, that was around 1.9 million years of age. In 1984, the Leakey group found a nearly complete fossilized skeleton that was dated to around 1.5 million years prior. This was a Homo erectus and is broadly known as “Turkana Boy.”
This clasp is an extract from the film Bones of Turkana. The film happens nearby around old Lake Turkana. This region is known as a support of human existence. There is proof of primates that lived here 4.2 million years prior. This film portrays the existences of a few human predecessors.
This video from Bones of Turkana centers around critical fossil revelations made at Lake Turkana.
The video accepts some knowledge of the hypothesis of advancement, the course of how organic entities created from before types of life. Advancement is certainly not a straight interaction, yet all the same a unique one. One animal categories doesn’t transform straightforwardly into another, yet wanders from its progenitors. Advancement happens all through a populace throughout an extensive stretch of time because of ecological tensions. This video at times utilizes the expressions “further developed or less progressed” which really don’t make a difference to advancement. Species advance to fit the specific climate that they are possessing at a given time, not to “advance” to an alternate developmental stage.
