Homo antecessor reconstruction. Reconstruction of a Homo antecessor head from the skull of 'El Nino de la Gran Dolina' (The Child of Gran Dolina). The skull, which is approximately 800,000 years old, is thought to belong to a child that died between 10 to 12 years of age. It was found in level TD6 of the Gran Dolina site, one of several archaeological sites in Sierra de Atapuerca, Spain, that have been studied on and off over the past century, leading to a massive advancement in the understanding of human evolution. In 2000, Sierra de Atapuerca was made a world heritage site by UNESCO.
