Homo erectus is the first hominin to move beyond Africa. This species is also the longest lived member of the genus Homo, appearing nearly 1.9 million years ago and some populations living until as recently as 143,000 years ago.
This cranium measures approximately 8” long x 5.5” high, with a width of 5.5”. It is based on the famous “Turkana Boy” skeleton found in Kenya and dating to 1.6 mya. This individual was likely a sub-adult (8-11 years old) and had a cranial capacity of 880cc, and would have likely had a cranial capacity of 1,000cc or so in adulthood. Later members of this species had cranial capacities approaching those of modern humans (1,350-1,500cc).
