Homo georgicus mould construction. Reconstruction of the head of a specimen of Homo georgicus. Silicone is being poured onto a clay sculpture to make a mould. This hominin, sometimes classified as Homo erectus georgicus, lived during the Pleistocene era. Fossils dating from around 1.8 million years ago were found in 1999 and 2001 at the Dmanisi archaeological site in Georgia. It is believed to have been the first of the hominins to have settled in Europe. They had small brains and the male of the species was much larger than the female. Reconstruction by the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
