Caption: Homo heidelbergensis family, artwork. Also known as Heidelberg Man, these early humans are part of the genus Homo. This is the same genus as modern humans, but this species of humans went extinct. Like other early humans, they had complex social structures and lived in family groups. They lived around 600,000 to 400,000 years ago. This reconstruction is based on skulls found in Sima de los Huesos, Sierra de Atapuerca, Spain. The individual in the centre of the back row is based on Skull 5, who died of septicaemia caused by a tooth infection. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, containing the earliest human remains found in Europe.
