1.34-Million-Year-Old Hominin Found

6 posts in this topic

The first skull of Paranthropus boisei, dated to 1.75 million years old, was discovered in 1959 at Olduvai by the anthropologist Dr Mary Leakey. A number of hominin's skull fossils have been discovered over the years, but the build and skeletal adaptations of the rest of the Paranthropus boisei's body have been unknown, until now.

The Paranthropus boisei individual likely stood 1.0 to 1.4 m tall and possessed a robust frame.

They were probably some squat little powerhouses.

great discovery but partial parts are not that reliable, like the java man for an instance.
