Rhodesian Man

Rhodesian Man (Homo rhodesiensis) is a hominin fossil that was described from a cranium found in an iron and zinc mine in Northern Rhodesia (now Kabwe, Zambia) in 1921 by Tom Zwiglaar, a Swiss miner.

In addition to the cranium, an upper jaw from another individual, a sacrum, a tibia, and two femur fragments were also found.

The skull was dubbed Rhodesian Man at the time of the find, but is now commonly referred to as the Broken Hill Skull or the Kabwe Cranium.

Before Benedict XVI: The Pope Who Quit Centuries Ago

Odyssey Networks (Feb. 15, 2013) Celestine V, the first pope to willingly abdicate, was once known as Peter of Morrone, a man who preferred to live as a hermit. Jon Sweeney, author of the book "The Pope Who Quit," explains that although many saw his abdication negatively, Celestine's refusal was ultimately an act of humility. "It wasn't an act of cowardice, it actually was an act of enlightenment," Sweeney said. "It was an act of deciding to be a faithful follower of Christ."
