Virtual Field Trip to the Human Origins Exhibit at the Perot Museum

Join us for a behind the scenes look at the Perot Museum's new exhibition called “Origins: Fossils from the Cradle of Humankind.” These fossils are part of an astonishing discovery of over 1,500 fossil elements of one of our human ancestors. In September, 2015 they were identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that expedition leader Lee Berger and team named Homo naledi. This is the first time these treasures have been out of Africa and displayed in North America. We'll also meet Becca Peixotto, one of the expedition team members who extracted may of the fossils from the Rising Star Cave System in South Africa.
