Dawn of Humanity is a look into a unique discovery of ancient human fossils. I’ve always been fascinated with the mysteries of our past. And, I hadn’t heard about this discovery in South Africa before. I was sent this movie for review, but the story is my own.

Dawn of Humanity Movie Review
NOVA and National Geographic present exclusive access to an astounding discovery of ancient fossil human ancestors. Deep in a South African cave, a special team of experts has brought to light an unprecedented wealth of fossils.
They belonged to a crucial gap in the record of our origins that spans the transition between the ape-like australopithecines (such as the famous Lucy) and the earliest human family members.
At the center of the discovery is paleoanthropologist Lee Berger, a character brimming with enthusiasm and opinions whose claims have stirred long controversy in the contentious field of human origins.

Dawn of Humanity Documentary review
I loved being able to see inside this cave that no one had been in for millions of years. I don’t agree with evolution, but it was fascinating seeing fossils from our ancient past and learning more about their theories. Watching them excavate the bones also taught me how careful you need to be on a dig site. They took so much care when they transported the bones to be sure they weren’t damaged.
Nova Dawn of Humanity is available now on DVD. The run time of the DVD is approximately 120 minutes and its SRP is $24.99. The program will also be available for digital download.
