How Fossils Helped Determine when Humans and Apes Diverged

I also found this article on the National Geographic Channel website and i thought it was a good topic to chose because we discussed fossils a lot. Also, it gives us information about neandertals which was our common ancestor from 500,000 to 600,000 years ago. The part about the parasitic DNA that caused human mutation about 2.8 million years ago fascinates me, along with learn about how humans came about through all the years.
