An archaic human walked fur-free about 1.2 million years ago, carrying fire on the savanna
Can someone help me here? Do we have some sort of fossil evidence that hominids were fur-free 1.2M years ago? Or is that just baseless supposition? And use of fire at that time -- do we know that?

The hairlessness is a guess; fire use, however, is supported by hearth evidence. AFAIK, to at least 600,000 years ago.
