Replica Australopithecus Boisei Skull
This model is a high-quality casting of a reconstruction of the Kalvarium skull with a partial mandible (Omo L. 7a- 125). The Kalvarium skull is approximately 1.7 million years old and was discovered at Lake Rudolph (now called Lake Turkana) in 1970. The partial mandible comes from a different dig but is clearly from the same species. The classification of the species has not yet been indisputably clarified. Discussions continue as to whether the specimen is an Australopithecus boisei or a Paranthropus boisei.
Example of a pre-human hominid.
