Caption: Homo erectus skull cap. Skull cap (cranium) of a Homo erectus hominid (human relative) found at the Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania. H. erectus was the most widespread of the hominids (with the exception of modern humans), and lived between 1.6-0.3 million years ago. This fossil is thought to be around 1.2 million years old. Early African forms of H. erectus are sometimes known as H. ergaster. The Olduvai Gorge region was excavated by Louis and Mary Leakey.
