Abstract

The Swartkrans cave is one of the classic early hominin sites where more remains of the Australopithecus robustus ape-man have been found than at any other locality in Africa. Australopithecus robustus is also known as Paranthropus robustus. For over 20 years an investigation of this extraordinary cave has been conducted by C. K. Brain producing a wealth of information of the life and death of this early hominins, their associated fauna and the environment. Results of the last seven years of excavation are presented in this volume in 13 chapters by noted specialists in various parts of the world. The foreword to this work is written by F. Clark Howell. This is Transvaal Museum Monograph no. 8.
