Homo erectus georgicus, the skull is dated to 1.77 million years old and it is in good condition. Museum of Natural Sciences (Brussels, Belgium). Made with CapturingReality.
The cranium was the smallest and most primitive Hominin skull ever discovered outside of Africa. In Africa, the Australopithecines and early Homo represent two distinctive evolutionary paths sharing a common ancestor. In Georgia the specimens, with a brain half the size of anatomically modern humans, were the smallest found at around 600 cm3 brain volume.
