An entire skull of an A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ human progenitor was discovered in 2005 at the archaeological site of Dmanisi, a small town in southern Georgia, Europe. The skull belonged to an extinct hominid 1.85 million years old!

The archaeological specimen, known as Skull 5 or D4500, is completely whole and has a long face, huge teeth and a small braincase. It was one of five A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ hominid skulls discovered at Dmanisi, forcing experts to reconsider the scenario of early human evolution.

“The result provides the first evidence that early Homo consisted of adult people with small brains but body mass, stature, and limb proportions exceeding the lower limit of modern variation,” the researchers write.

Dmanisi is a village and archaeological site in the Kvemo Kartli region of Georgia, about 93 kilometers southwest of the country\’s capital, Tbilisi, in the Mashavera River valley. The 1.8 million-year-old hominid site has been discovered.

Many unique species of the genus Homo were thought to be a single lineage when a succession of skulls with diverse physical characteristics were unearthed in Dmanisi in early 2010. Skull 5, also known as “D4500”, is the fifth skull unearthed in Dmanisi. .

However, the Dmanisi archaeological site is the oldest hominid site outside Africa, and artifact research has revealed that certain hominids, most notably Homo erectus georgicus, departed Africa 1.85 million years ago. The five skulls are almost the same age.

Although most scientists believe that Skull 5 is a regular form of Homo erectus, the human ancestors who lived in Africa during the same period. While some claim to be Australopithecus sediba, which lived about 1.9 million years ago in what is now South Africa and is believed to be the ancestor of the genus Homo, which includes contemporary humans.

Many scientists have offered countless new possibilities, but we are still deprived of the genuine face of our history.
