Cradle of Mankind

Before heading back to Great Britain to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee there’s just enough time to explore the World Heritage Site of Cradle of Mankind and the cave system with all the fossils.

Museums may be good at presenting old rocks and relics but seeing the in situ helps bring them to life (although in some of the darker recesses of the cave luckily not literally).
For the storytellers amongst us the caves and rocks with prehistory emerging from the cracks and crevices gives a huge opportunity for the real or imagined explanation of life and evolution.
