Caption

Hominid and chimpanzee skulls and casts. In the centre and at bottom left there is an endocranial cast and skull of a modern man (Homo sapiens). In the bottom right there is an endocranial cast and skull of the human ancestor Homo erectus. In the top right there is the skull and brain of a chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), and in the top left, an endocranial cast and model head of a Neanderthal man (Homo neanderthalensis). Neanderthals were relatives of modern humans that lived in Europe between around 150,000 and 30,000 years ago. They had thicker brows and a larger, more prominent jaw than modern humans, and were stockier. Their stature implies they evolved to survive in a cold climate.
