    Several comments: 1) you need to cite your sources and add a citation section 2) check your grammar 3) Olduvai is IN Tanzania, not north of it, check your sources. 4) Expand your discussion of Olduvai to explain why this is relevant to an anthropology class. There are very particular fossils found there that are quite important for anthropology.

    Nice photo!

  2. I updated my entry. I Hope this is more detailed.

    Better – but to be clear (I realize you haven’t read about these species before) Australopithicines and Homo Sapiens are not the same genus. You should clarify the sentence “This fossil could be Homo sapiens, however it hasn’t been discovered.” because I am not sure what you mean.

    Also – add your citations.
