Presentation Transcript

  1. Homo erectus in Asia • Pleistocene: 1.8 mya to 10,000 ya • Both brains c. 650 cc Skull 1 Homo habilis Homo geogicus or erectus (?) Dmanisi, Republic of Geogia

  2. Skull 2 Dmanasi, Republic of Georgia In former Soviet Union Discovered in 2001 600 to 780 cc H. habilis

  3. Early Archaic Homo sapiens • Classification complex & unresolved • Archaic H. sapiens appears c. 700,000 ybp • Wide distribution, in the Old World • Brow ridges prominent and arched • Later forms have higher cranial vault and reduced tooth size. • Mean brain size: 1,330 cc • Mean brain size of H. erectus: 1,003 cc

  4. Archaic Homo sapiens Prepared core technique

  5. A hypothetical phylogeny 

  6. Archaic Homo sapiens

  7. archaic Homo sapiens sites

  8. Brain: 1300 cc Archaic Homo sapiens with erectus-like features Petralona, Greece Kabwe, Zambia Bodo, Ethiopia Oldest of these three specimens = 500,000 ybp, Bodo, Ethiopia Homo heidelbergensis (to 700,000 ybp)

  9. Constraints on brain size

  10. Rotational change in orientation necessary
