The Tautavel Man

The skull of the Tautavel Man, which was discovered in 1971, has a flat and receding forehead and a well-developed arch of the eyebrows. The face is big with rectangular eye sockets.

The volume of the cranial cavity is 1150 cm³. The head was that of a young adult.

The skeleton was reconstructed with 75 human remains that were found, as well as casts to fill in the missing pieces.

The Tautavel Man's height was 1.65 m, and his bones are sturdier than those of modern day humans are.
Due to the direct, non-destructive dating method that was used, his age was estimated at 450,000 years.
Using the skull and the other bones, it was possible to reconstruct his face and body.
