Australopithecus boisei lived in Eastern Africa between 2.3 and 1.2 million years ago. This fossil was discovered in 1959 by Mary Leakey at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania. The large sagital crest and wide cheek bones identifies this specimen as a robust australopithecine, meaning that some scientists assign it to the gensus Paranthropus.
This skull measures approximately 7” long x 6” high, with a width of 6”. The cranial capacity for this species was between 500 and 550cc.
