Caption: Rhodesia man skull. This skull was found at Broken Hill (Kabwe), Zambia, in 1921. It is thought to be around 120,000 years old. Its classification in unclear, with some regarding it as a late Homo erectus and others as an early Homo sapiens. H. erectus was the most widespread of the hominids (human relatives) apart from modern humans. It lived between 1.6-0.3 million years ago, and fossils have been found throughout Africa, Europe and Asia. Some classify the finds as different species based on their location. H. sapiens first appeared around 250,000 years ago, and gave rise to modern humans (H. sapiens sapiens).
