Human Evolution Timeline

How Did We Discover These Hominids?

Scientists have found have many fossils of ancient homonids throughout time. They have also discovered and named up to 18 types of homonids. The earliest hominids had small teeth, flat faces, large brains and the ability to walk upright. All these characteristics resembled humanlike features. The oldest fossils of hominids were located in Africa that were 6-7 million years old, so scientist think the evolution of the human race started in Africa.
