Caption: Male and female Homo habilis, artist's impression. H. habilis was an ancestor of modern humans that lived between around 2.1 and 1.6 million years ago. "Habilis" means "handy", and refers to the supposed tool-making abilities of these hominids. Their brains were small though, with a cranium volume of around 700 cubic centimetres (compared to around 1350cc for modern humans).
