Caption: Java Man bones, artwork. Historical sketch of the fossilised remains of Java Man (Pithecanthropus erectus, later renamed Homo erectus). These remains were found in 1898 during excavations lead by Eugene Dubois (1858-1940). They were found in sedimentary deposits at a bend of the Solo river in Central Java, Indonesia. Homo erectus is the most widespread and longest-surviving of all the fossil hominids. Its geographical spread included north and east Africa, Europe, Indonesia and China. It lived between 1 and 2 million years ago.
