7:42 pm
people know me. i've been good for that and been determined that one day i would make it today i'm just seeing the cradle of human kind. this leading world heritage side allows symbolically the journey away. it began. teresa can you tell me, gave an insight into what you can look forward to at the mirage in this, in the kayla of human kind form, part of what is known as the fossil harmony side of south africa. and this is an area of about 53000 cases where we have an abundance of fossil domains found stating back to about 4000000 years. and kind of gives us a story of who we are as humans and origins in africa. so the matter being visit the same was established a few years off. the cradle area was declared
7:43 pm
a unique school. and he seems, it was established so that he could bring the discoveries, the science, the importance of evolution, and what we found in south africa every south african as well as the people all over the world. because at the end of the day, this is our shade history shade hated this. it is something of national pride and something that everyone should have access to. so the matter of being visit was established just up the road from the dean. so that be on disturbing the fossil sights and essentially this is just an area, a museum that we hope is an experience. so when you leave here, we hope that you leave with a lasting memory of what you will learn inside this beautiful building. and also so that you get the knowledge that the scientists have access to this in dice, ah, creating a face to showcase history is no mean feat. in this instance,
