The vermiculate surface pattern of brow ridges in Neandertal and modern crania

, : The vermiculate surface pattern of brow ridges in Neandertal and modern crania. American Journal of Physical Anthropology 49(1): 1-10

A convoluted surface pattern of ridges and grooves characterizes the frontal torus in adult Neanderthal fossils. Modern human skulls rarely have the pattern well developed. It is not observed in postcranial bones, nor in skulls in Neanderthal children. This vermiculate bone is resistant to oriented cracking from weathering or fractures. Structural characteristics of the bone give evidence on the proglem of the function of hominid brow ridges.
