Caption

Homo heidelbergensis. French anthropologist Yves Coppens (born 1934) with a model of a specimen of Heidelberg Man (Homo heidelbergensis). 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 Petralona fossil skull, discovered in 1960 in a cave near Thessaloniki, Greece. Reconstruction by the Daynes Studio, Paris, France. Photographed in 2002.
