Mrs Ples and Friends exhibition

Maropeng’s latest exhibition, titled Mrs Ples and Friends, features a selection of original fossils from the Cradle of Humankind, the first Paranthropus robustus specimen discovered at Kromdraai (TM 1517); COB 101, aka “Pancake”, a hominid fossil to be discovered at Cooper’s Cave; STW 505, the most complete hominid cranium discovered in Sterkfontein; and, of course, Mrs Ples herself.

The exhibition runs until 19 January, 2014.
