Nadaouiyeh – A homo erectus in Acheulean context


Schmid, Peter (2015). Nadaouiyeh – A homo erectus in Acheulean context. L'Anthropologie, 119(5):694-705.

Abstract

The Middle East is apparently the most important passage for the dispersal of early hominins. Numerous archeological sites prove the existence of hominin populations in this region, but despite these rich cultural remains, hominin fossils are very rare. In 1996, a hominin left parietal was found in an Acheulean context. In addition, the faunal remains indicate a steppe environment. What does this single cranial fragment tell us? Based on new publications and in particular on recent finds, the value of isolated elements is discussed.
