Recent discoveries of hominid remains older than 5 Ma have afforded new perspectives on the origin of the hominid clade. This chapter describes and assesses the key evidence bearing on these issues—the remains of Ardipithecus kadabba from the Middle Awash study area of the Afar Rift. It introduces the major morphological features of the known Ardipithecus kadabba specimens and also infers possible ancestral ape conditions from the morphologies shared by extant great apes and the collective late and middle Miocene fossil ape record.
