On the possibility that Australopithecus afarensis spent more time walking than climbing:

Another take on human evolution:
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/02/110217141307.htm

... and earliest humans weren't too different from us, apparently:
http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2011-02/uocp-ehn021411.php
 
Now we are told that Oetzi had brown eyes, not blue:
http://www.redorbit.com/news/science/1998300/oetzi_the_iceman_had_brown_eyes_not_blue/index.html

... and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his rediscovery, they've done a new 3d reconstruction of him:
http://www.iceman.it/en/node/226
 
Feature on the first Neanderthals:

Neanderthals apparently used feathers for decoration:

More on Lucy's foot:
