Massive cranium from Harbin establishes a new Middle Pleistocene human lineage in China

Massive cranium from Harbin establishes a new Middle Pleistocene human lineage in China


More than 100,000 years ago, several human species coexisted in Asia, Europe, and Africa

- A completely preserved fossil human cranium discovered in the Harbin area provides critical evidence for understanding

the evolution of humans and the origin of our species

- The Harbin cranium has a large cranial capacity (1,420 mL) falling in the range ofmodern humans, but is combined with

a mosaic of primitive and derived characters

- Our comprehensive phylogenetic analyses suggest that the Harbin cranium represents a new sister lineage for Homo

sapiens

- A multi-directional “shuttle dispersal model” is more likely to explain the complex phylogenetic connections among

African and Eurasian Homo species/populations
