A recent study by SFU researchers Mana Dembo, Mark Collard (Department of Archaeology) and Arne Mooers has determined the date for H. naledi  to be a million years later than previously estimated. It also concluded that these fossils represent one of our closest relatives suggesting multiple hominin species lived in Africa during the same time.
