Ancient child skull had no soft spot

2 posts in this topic

The three-million-year-old skull of a young hominin shows no signs of the kind of soft spot that would be seen in human children with larger brains, CT scans reveal.

The findings, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science are the latest contribution to long-running debate over whether the Taung Child fossil may have represented the earliest signs of a fusing skull.
