Composite skeleton in Naledi cave

Robbie describes this find:

A 'composite skeleton' of a Naledi Hominid from the Rising Star Cave System [in South Africa]. Recent discovery which possibly is earliest example of the ritual burial of the dead we’ve yet found. Maybe 200,000 BCE or even older. Clearly this one was assembled from many bones scattered in the Cave.
