South Africa: BRICS Leaders Get a Taste of Cradle of Humankind
BRICS leaders on Thursday explored the rich history of the Cradle of Humankind, which boasts some of the most world-renowned discoveries of humankind’s hominin ancestors. The Cradle of Humankind, which is one of eight World Heritage Sites in the country, offers a world-class exhibition centre focusing on the development of humans and their ancestors over the past few million years. It's the world's richest hominin site, home to around 40% of the world's human ancestor fossils. Situated in the West Rand of Gauteng and about 63 kilometres from the Sandton Convention Centre where the 10th BRICS Summit is being held, BRICS leaders got an inside look of the centre via livestream. The distance between the summit venue and the Cradle of Mankind posed a logistical challenge, which meant that the world leaders could not go to the site in person. They instead got to experience the centre remotely via livestream technology.
