Peking Man research. French anthropologist Yves Coppens (born 1934) with a model reconstruction (left) of Peking Man (Homo erectus pekinensis). Peking Man refers to a set of hominin fossils discovered in the 1920s near Beijing, China. The fossils date from around 750,000 years ago. Homo erectus is the most widespread and longest-surviving of all the fossil hominins. Its geographical spread included north and east Africa, Europe, Indonesia and China. It lived between 0.3 and 2 million years ago. Reconstruction by the Daynes Studio, Paris, France. Photographed in 2002.
