Caption: Peking man skull, top view. Moulding of the fossilised skull of the Peking man (Homo erectus pekinensis). The skull was discovered in the Zhoukoudian caves near Beijing (Peking) in China in the 1920s. Homo erectus was the most wide ranging of the hominids (relatives of humans) with the exception of modern humans, though their numbers actually remained relatively low. Homo erectus lived from around 1.8-0.3 million years ago and the Peking man is dated as being approximately 400,000 years old.
