Caption: Homo heidelbergensis head model. Reconstruction of the head of a specimen of Heidelberg Man (Homo heidelbergensis) hunter. This hominin is an extinct species that forms a relatively recent part of the human evolutionary tree. Fossils of this species date from between 600,000 and 400,000 years ago. It may have been an ancestor of both Neanderthals and modern humans. This reconstruction is based on the Arago 21 skull, discovered in 1971 in the Tautavel region of France, and dating from 450,000 years ago. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
