Homo neanderthalensis (Neanderthal - La Ferrassie 1) Cast Replica Skull #BH-019

-Size: 9"L x 6"W x 7"H

-Species: Homo neanderthalensis

-Notes: This 50,000 year old Homo neanderthalensis skull (La Ferrassie 1) was discovered in France in 1909 and described that same year by Louis Capitan and Denis Peyrony. A more thorough study of the La Ferrassie skeleton was published in 1976 by Jean Louis Heim. La Ferrassie is considered to be a "classic" Neanderthal, having features that best represent the features of its anatomy, including a low-vaulted cranium with projecting face and low forehead, pronounced double browridge, wide cheekbones, weak chin, heavily worn front teeth, a substantial nasal opening, and very large brain capacity (more than 1,600 cc). Some consider Neanderthal not much more than a subspecies, H. s. neanderthalensis, of Homo sapiens, and that, rather than becoming extinct, they were absorbed into the modern human population. Others consider them a separate species, H. neanderthalensis. Neanderthals are thought to have lived between 200,000 and 30,000 years ago. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
