-Size: 7&½"L x 5&½"W x 6&½"H

-Species: Homo neanderthalensis

-Notes: This 70,000 year old Homo neanderthalensis child skull was discovered by A. Okladnikov in Teshik-Tash cave, Uzbekistan in 1938. This skull helped establish the easternmost range of Neanderthals. It has been suggested that this skeleton was buried in a ritual fashion. With an estimated age of 9 years, this child had matured enough physically to exhibit distinctive Neanderthal characteristics, such as a large face and nasal area, a long, low cranium, a mandible without a chin, and a maturing browridge. The original cranium was reconstructed from approximately 150 fragments. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
