Australopithecus anamensis has a combination of traits found in both apes and humans. The upper end of the tibia (shin bone) shows an expanded area of bone and a human-like orientation of the ankle joint, indicative of regular bipedal walking (support of body weight on one leg at the time). Long forearms and features of the wrist bones suggest these individuals probably climbed trees as well.

This volume 1 and its companion volume 2 present the results of new investigations into the geology, paleontology and paleoecology of the early hominin site of Laetoli in northern Tanzania. The site is one of the most important paleontological and paleoanthropological sites in Africa, worldrenowned for the discovery of fossils of the early. The chimpanzee–human divergence likely took place during about 10 to 7 million years ago. The list of fossils begins with Graecopithecus, dated some million years ago, which may or may not still be ancestral to both the human and the chimpanzee the earlier history of the human lineage, see Timeline of human evolution#Hominidae, Hominidae#Phylogeny.

The following tables give a brief overview of several notable hominin fossil finds relating to human evolution beginning with the formation of the Hominini tribe in the late Miocene (roughly 6 million years ago).. As there are thousands of fossils, mostly fragmentary, often consisting of single bones or isolated teeth with complete skulls and skeletons rare, this overview is not complete, but.

Kanapoi is a paleontological site in the Kenyan Rift Valley, to the southwest of Lake Turkana. Fossils were first found at Kanapoi in the s by a Harvard expedition, and later by expeditions from the National Museums of Kenya.

Fossils at Kanapoi were deposited in. At Lothagam, for example, in the Turkana Basin of Kenya, there were 10 species of megaherbivores, including the earliest records of the elephant family, Elephantidae.

Near Lothagam is the early Pliocene site of Kanapoi, with a rich fossil record dated to about million years by: 1.
