Homo georgicus at Pleistocene waterhole. Illustration of Homo georgicus male and female hominins at a waterhole, with a sabre-toothed cat (lower left). Elephants and early horses are at upper left. This hominin, sometimes classified as Homo erectus georgicus, lived during the Pleistocene. 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. Their remains show that they had small brains and that the male was larger than the female.
