Homo rudolfensis

Argue, Deborah


Fossil hominin bones found in Kenya in 1973 remain enigmatic despite 43 years of discussion and analysis. The bones comprise a partial cranium and face and leg bones. The cranium and face have the Kenya National Museum name KNM-ER 1470. Just where they fit on the human evolutionary tree has long occupied researchers, but a resolution has not been forthcoming, and it is unclear as to what other fossils might belong in the same species as KNM-ER 1470.
