Since 2002, Reed has been directing field work in the Ledi-Geraru region of Ethiopia in search of hominin fossils. During the 2013 field season, she co-led an international research team with Campisano, and the years of groundwork paid off with a startling find: a 2.8-million-year-old fossilized jaw of Homo lineage. The fossil's date places it in a timeframe for which there is little physical evidence of human ancestors, making the discovery a pivotal one.
The doctoral student went to Ethiopia with ASU evolutionary anthropologists Kaye Reed and Chris Campisano and made a ground-breaking discovery. His find, part of a lower jawbone with 5 attached teeth, is the oldest known fossil of Homo lineage, predating previous finds by 400,000 years. This major development in origins research is detailed in the March 4 online edition of the journal Science.
Culture, Heritage + Identity; Societies + their Natural Environments
Founded by Professor Michelle Hegmon, the Archaeology of the Human Experience is a revolutionary new research approach that asks archaeologists to relate to the ancient peoples they study by considering the context of their everyday lives.
