1.     A. What are the key features of Homo naledi that make it similar to Homo sapiens?

B. What are key features of H. naledi that make it different from H. sapiens? Consider dates, locations, anatomical features such as cranial capacity, hands, legs, height, and any associated artifacts. 

2.     Based on what you identified above in Question 1, discuss the following:

A.     Identify and apply at least two key processes of evolution (from Unit I) and apply these to understanding reasons for the differences in these different species.

B.     Discuss the process of 'adaptive radiation' (anagenisis) and how it might explain something about the diversity of various hominins across Africa, Asia and Europe.

This discussion should include a minimum (a few more would be better) of the different fossil species, representing different time periods.
