Oldest grave discovered in South Africa

Scientists claim to have discovered the oldest burial ground in South Africa. They say that the remains of small-brained 'Homo Naledi' species have been found in this cemetery. Humans are distantly related to Homo sapiens.

  The cemetery was discovered next to a UNESCO-declared World Heritage Site in Johannesburg, South Africa. These graves are claimed to be more than 100,000 years old.

Researcher and paleontologist Lee Berger said on Monday that they have found some specimens of Homo Naledi. It was about 30 meters (100 ft) below the ground. Homo naledi is a prehistoric tree-climbing mammal.

Lee Berger, who led the research and research, said these are the oldest known burials of mammals. Before this, samples of human (Homo sapiens) graves of at least 100,000 years old were found. This is older than that
