Page 172 Homo Pekinensis

Except for that massively protruding brow, this guy could be a modern man.  But he lived about six to four hundred thousand years ago in China.  The skull and teeth record for the Homo pekinensis is considerable-32-40 complete individuals- but we know much less about their the rest of the skeleton.  He is a sub-species of Homo erectus.
