Caption: Homo ergaster. Model of a Homo ergaster man, who dates back 1.9 million years and is traditionally considered an early type of H. erectus by scientists. However, there are differences between the earl populations of H. erectus in Africa and the later populations found in Europe, Africa and Asia. Many scientists now separate the two into distinct species; H. ergaster for early African 'Homo erectus' and H. erectus for later populations, mainly in Asia. Modern humans share the same differences as H. ergaster with the Asian H. erectus, so scientists consider H. ergaster to be the ancestor of later Homo populations.
