London says hello to Homo naledi

They are among the most sensational fossils to be found in South Africa in recent years, and visitors to London's Natural History Museum can see what all the fuss is about on Friday.

3D prints of the remains of Homo naledi will be on display at the NHM's Science Uncovered event.

They were given to the institution by the discovery team in Johannesburg.

Bones from perhaps 15 of the human-like creatures were recovered from a cave complex not far from the city.

NHM palaeoanthropologist Dr Louise Humphrey discussed the naledi models with our science correspondent Jonathan Amos.
