2-million-year-old fossils offer look at human evolution

Not much has been studied of this new fossil discovery, but each new hominid fossil fills in a little more of the evolution of humans from earlier forms of apes. Contrary to popular understanding of human evolution, there is no missing link that would clinch the evidence for human evolution. We don't have anything like a detailed collection of fossils that show every stage of our evolution, but we have enough to show that it happened. This will undoubtedly lead to many new insights into the process.
