						<p>Researchers have identified what they suggest is the earliest ancestor of humans &ndash; a microscopic, bag-like sea creature, which lived about 540 million years ago. <em>Saccorhytus</em>, named after its sack-like and elliptical body with a large mouth, was found in China.&nbsp;</p>

						<p>&nbsp;</p>

						<p>If their conclusions, co-authored by the Department&#39;s Simon Conway Morris, are correct, then <em>Saccorhytus</em> was the common ancestor of a huge range of species, and the earliest step yet discovered on the evolutionary path that eventually led to humans.</p>
