A reconstruction of Homo habilis at the Westfälisches Museum für Archäologie, Herne. It is thought that Acheulean technologies first developed in Africa out of the more primitive Oldowan technology as long ago as million years ago, by Homo habilis.

First humans out of Africa were small and scrappy, new study suggests

Analysis of early human fossils by researchers at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada, suggests it was 'Handy man' not Homo erectus who were first to migrate from Africa.

Homo habilis was discovered in 1960 by Louis and Mary Leakey's son, Jonathan Leakey, at Olduvai Gorge in northwestern Tanzania. Homo Habilis, Mary Leakey, Biological Anthropology, Forensic Anthropology, Mitochondrial Dna, Human Evolution, Weird Creatures, Primates, Ancient History

Homo habilis is a species of the genus Homo, which lived from approximately 2.33 to 1.4 million years ago, during the Gelasian Pleistocene period. The discovery and description of this species is credited to both Mary and Louis Leakey, who found fossils in Tanzania, East Africa, between 1962 and 1964. Homo habilis (or possibly H. rudolfensis) was the earliest known species of the genus Homo until May 2010, when H. gautengensis was discovered, a species believed to be even older than H…
