KAMPALA (AFP) - A team of Ugandan and French palaeontologists announced Tuesday they had found a 20-million-year-old ape skull in north-eastern Uganda, saying it could shed light on the regions evolutionary history. This is the first time that the complete skull of an ape of this age has been found ... it is a highly important fossil and it will certainly put Uganda on the map in terms of the scientific world, Martin Pickford, a paleontologist from the College de France in Paris, told journalists in Kampala. The fossilised skull belonged to a male Ugandapitchecus Major, a remote cousin of todays great apes which roamed the region around 20 million years ago. The team discovered the remains on July 18 while looking for fossils in the remnants of an extinct volcano in Ugandas remote north-eastern Karamoja region.
