Bophuthatswana

The Republic of Bophuthatswana was a Bantustan (also known as "Homeland"; an area set aside for members of a specific ethnicity) which was declared nominally independent by the apartheid regime of South Africa in 1977. However, its independence, like the other Bantustans (Ciskei, Transkei and Venda) was not recognized by any country other than South Africa. (Wiki)

The Neanderthal, or valley of Neander was named after Joachim Neander (17th century), and gave Neanderthal fossils their name. Skeletal remains had been found in the valley in 1856 and just 20 years ago more bone fragments were discovered. The new museum is marvelous as are the many educational points in the valley and the herds of animals which roamed in stone-age times (here the Wisent).

Mary Douglas Leakey (1913 – 1996) was a British paleoanthropologist who discovered the first fossilised Proconsul skull, an extinct ape which is now believed to be ancestral to humans. She also discovered the robust Zinjanthropus skull at Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, eastern Africa. For much of her career she worked with her husband, Louis Leakey, at Olduvai Gorge, where they uncovered fossils of ancient hominines and the earliest hominins, as well as the stone tools produced by the latter group. Mary Leakey developed a system for classifying the stone tools found at Olduvai. She discovered the Laetoli footprints, and at the Laetoli site she discovered hominin fossils that were more than 3.75 million years old.

These stamps and SS were issued by Togo in 2013 to commemorate centenary of Leakey's birthdays. Stamps depicting Mary Leakey and several of her famous findings:

Leakey and a reconstruction of Proconsul africanus:
