Broken Hill

brokenhillSkull found at Broken Hill, Zambia, in 1921. Once known as Rhodesian Man. Homo heidelbergensis (or is H. heidebergensis just a wastebasket category?)  Looks like he’s (yes, he’s probably male) on the road to Homo sapiens: heavily built, with massive brow ridges, but a flat face and relatively large brain. He could be significantly younger than 300,000 years ago.
