Caption: Homo erectus skull. Known as Java Man, this early human species was identified based on fossil evidence first found in 1891 in archaeological sites along the Solo River, East Java, Indonesia. This specimen is the Sangiran 17 skull, found in 1969 in the Sangiran Cave, Central Java. It has been dated to between 1.3 and 1 million years ago, though estimates vary. Museum displays such as this are replica cast reconstructions from the original fragments.
