A good sample of canine teeth of this species indicates very little difference in size between males and females in this species.Ardi’s fossils were found alongside faunal remains indicating she lived in a wooded environment.More than 1500 artefacts were found in the lowest occupation layer.Artefacts included those made from silcrete, quartzite and white quartz, a grindstone, pieces of dolerite and ground haematite, chlorite and mica and red and yellow ochre.The sand below this layer was devoid of any signs of human activity.From a depth of 2.5-2.3 m there was dense occupation, from between 52,000 7,000/-11,000 BP and 45,000 6,000/-9,000 BP.The layers showing signs of human occupation were TL dated to between 61,000 and 52,000 years ago.

The method evolved from the tendency to formalize the archaeological process, especially through the work of LR Binford, DL Clarke, and JC Gardin.

Computer science and mathematics are used to elaborate the means for transforming simple descriptions of archaeological data into cultural, economic, and social reconstructions of earlier societies.

was first reported in 1994; in 2009, scientists announced a partial skeleton, nicknamed ‘Ardi’.

The foot bones in this skeleton indicate a divergent large toe combined with a rigid foot – it's still unclear what this means concerning behavior.
