The IHE was established in January 2004 under the interim Directorship of Professor Trefor Jenkins. The current Director, Professor Francis Thackeray, was appointed in February 2009. The objectives of the IHE include fieldwork and research focusing partly on South African Plio-Pleistocene hominin fossils and non-hominin fauna (from Sterkfontein, Swartkrans, Gladysvale, Gondolin, Makapansgat, Taung and a newly discovered site), and partly on late Pleistocene archaeological sites (including Blombos, Sibudu and Rose Cottage Cave) associated with artefacts reflecting technological innovation in the Middle Stone Age.
