- Scientists have discovered the oldest and most complete fossil of a human ancestor.
An incredible 95 percent complete fossil of a 47-million-year-old human ancestor dubbed Ida has been discovered and, after two years of secret study, an international team of scientists has revealed it to the world. The fossilís remarkable state of preservation allows an unprecedented glimpse into early human evolution. Discovered in Messel Pit, Germany, it represents the moment before anthropoid primates--the group that would later evolve into humans, apes and monkeys--began to split from lemurs and other prosimian primates. This groundbreaking discovery fills in a critical gap in human and primate evolution.
Lying inside a high security vault, deep within the heart of one of Europe's leading museums, is an extraordinary specimen that could be the scientific equivalent of the Holy Grail - a fifty million year old perfectly fossilised primate. It is not onlycomplete but amazingly has traces of hair and gut contents. This perfectly preserved specimen will open a window on the most important era of evolution - the Eocene Period. Ten million years after the last dinosaur, mammals start to rule the Earth,marking the beginning of human evolution.
