8-million-year-old Homo georgicus skulls, and their strikingly individual faces greet museum visitors.
According to the researchers, putting aside the margin corresponding to small biotype species like Homo habilis (East Africa), Homo georgicus (Georgia) and Homo floresiensis (Flores in Indonesia), all documented humans during the Early and Middle Pleistocene Era that inhabited Africa (Homo ergaster, Homo rhodesiensis), Asia (Homo erectus) and Europe (Homo antecessor, Homo heidelbergensis and Homo neanderthalensis) seemed to have medium and above-medium heights for the most part of two millions years.
And why give names like Homo georgicus (from Dmanisi in Georgia) and Homo ergaster (from Kenya), when both can be sensibly viewed as Homo erectus?
