The nature and status of the Florisbad skull as revealed by its non-metrical features


The nature and status of the Florisbad skull as revealed by its non-metrical features



American Journal of Phys Anthropol 23(1): 1-16



DOI: 10.1002/ajpa.1330230103

The Florisbad skull, in its metrical features, has little, if any, Neanderthal affinities, while the nature of its supraorbital torus, malar bone and maxilla link it definitely with Homo sapiens. As regards the endocranial cast, there is a much closer parallel to the more generalized stage of human cerebral evolution represented by Rhodesian man. More modern than Neanderthal man and arising from some separate but closely related stock nearer in cerebral development to Rhodesian man, Florisbad man could serve equally well as the ancestor of Boskop man and the proto-Australian slock of Wadjak. The Boskop and Australian types represent the pedomorphic and gerontomorphic specializations of this earlier, generalized and quasi-sapient and specifically African fossil type.
