Homo Ergaster

(redirected from Ergaster)
A hominid species that lived between 1.8 and 1.3 million years ago in eastern and southern Africa; most—not all—experts regard H ergaster as a distinct species and the direct ancestor of H erectus; he was tall and appears to have used stone tools, despite his relatively diminutive, great ape-sized cranial cavity
