Homo naledi lived sometime between 335 and 236 thousand years ago. A second chamber in the Rising Star cave system, which contained additional specimens includes a child and the partial skeleton of an adult male with a well-preserved skull that has been named “Neo” – a Sesotho word meaning “a gift”.
