This photo provided by the journal Science shows an aerial view of the Dmanisi excavation site, situated below a medieval Georgian village, where an estimated 1.8-million-year-old skull of a human ancestor was found, the most complete ancient hominid skull found to date. The find is the earliest evidence of human ancestors moving out of Africa and spreading north to the rest of the world, according to a study published Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, in the journal Science.
