This week I’ve been at the Vienna Natural History Museum to do some work. It’s one of the great museums of the world, and they have a new human evolution exhibition with several great reconstructions of fossil specimens by Elizabeth Daynès. Several original hominin skeletal specimens are here on loan for a short time, including these:
Those are Qafzeh 11 and Qafzeh 9 from the Middle Paleolithic of the Levant, around 90,000 years old.
