Professor Lee R. Berger, prolific Paleoanthropologist known for his major role in the excavations of such new species as Australopithecus sediba and Homo naledi, has taken the pandemic downtime as an opportunity to share the contents of one of the most remarkable rooms in existence: the Witwatersrand Hominin vault. He’s been doing some short, informative lectures which I thought you guys might like to see. I’ve enjoyed them immensely, it’s not often we get to see the original fossils. Note: Prof. Berger has always been at the forefront of the push for open access and free flow of information, but it is important to remember he (like all scientists and especially paleoanthropologists) holds some bias and views which differ from others in the field. http://www.wits.ac.za/news/latest-news/research-news/2020/human-origins/

The videos cover paleontology, geology and include many of his class lectures, all presented with his genuine love and enthusiasm for describing and detailing our ancient past. Personally, I have learned so much from watching his videos and they continue to inspire me, I hope they can for you as well. Rather than me trying to explain his fantastic videos, I'll let the man himself do it. Linked below is a trailer for the channel, giving a brief overview.

These videos are also supplementary video content for some of his university courses.
