Dropping into a hidden chamber deep in a South African cave, we explore an unprecedented trove of over 1500 ancient human bones that hold the potential to rewrite the story of our origins. They may help fill a crucial gap in the fossil record and tell us how Homo, the human family, emerged from ape-like ancestors like the famous Lucy. Join NOVA on the treacherous descent into this cave of spectacular and enigmatic finds and discover their starling implications for the saga of what makes us human.
