Homo Heidelbergensis - male

Homo rhodesiensis (Rhodesian man) is a hominin species described from the fossil Kabwe skull.

So far we have unearthed fossil evidence from more than 20 different human-like species, known as hominins, who are more closely related to humans than any of the apes alive today.     Meet some of our oldest relatives below and discover what insights they can provide about our own evolution.

From left to right, reconstructions of Australopithecus ramidus, early and late Homo erectus, Homo heidelbergensis, a Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis) and a modern human (Homo sapiens).

Homo heidelbergensis es una especie extinta del género Homo. Eran individuos altos que tenían 1,80 m de estatura y muy fuertes (llegarían a 105 kg), de grandes cráneos que median 1350 cm³, muy aplanados con relación a los del hombre actual, con mandíbulas salientes y gran abertura nasal.

HOMO HEIDELBERGENSIS: 	 Entre Homo antecessor, una especie poco conocida basada en fósiles de las colinas de Atapuerca, en España, y los linajes Sapiens y Neanderthalensis existió una especie con fósiles en Europa desde hace medio millón de años, y en África un poco más tempranamente, que presenta carácteres intermedios entre H. Erectus / Ergaster y H. Sapiens.

400,000-Year-Old Hominin DNA Throws Everything We Know About Human Evolution Into Disarray

SPANISH HOMINID >>>> Here, a skeleton of a Homo heidelbergensis from Sima de los Huesos, a unique cave site in Northern Spain.

The Homo heidelbergensis lived from about 700,000 yrs ago to 200,000 yrs ago. These were the first early humans to venture into the cold latitudes of Europe, were the first species to build shelters, and hunt big game animals with wooden spears. European populations of this species were the direct ancestors of the Homo neanderthalensis, NOT Homo sapiens.

The researchers have found that Homo heidelbergensis was only slightly taller than the Neanderthal (SINC / José Antonio Peñas)

Homo Heidelbergensis vs Neanderthal Vs Cro Magnon - I like how they present our ancestors and human contemporaries as less hairy and more dignified, but I feel disturbed by how hot that Cro-magnon is, he's a babe
