In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit one of the world’s most important archaeological sites, in the country of Georgia. Senior Editor/Writer Gemma Tarlach tells us about the oldest human skull fossils found outside of Africa, which challenge what we think we know about our deep past.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
