Making headlines across the world with the recent groundbreaking announcement, paleoanthropologist Lee Berger – whose discovery of Homo naledi, a new species of human relative, in South Africa – is coming to Dallas to speak at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

Berger’s research was funded by the Dallas-based Lyda Hill Foundation. The new species, H. naledi, sheds light on the origins and diversity of the human genus. In addition to being covered by The New York Times, BBC News, CNN and others, Berger’s discovery will be the cover story for National Geographic’s October issue.
