Neanderthal child skull (70,000 years).
The Homo neanderthalensis child skull Teshik-Tash was discovered by A. Okladnikov in Uzbekistan in 1938. This skull helped establish the easternmost range of Neanderthals. It has been suggested that this skeleton was buried in a ritual fashion. With an estimated age of 9 years, this young boy had matured enough physically to exhibit distinctive Neanderthal characteristics, such as a large face and nasal area, a long, low cranium, a mandible without a chin, and a maturing brow ridge. The original cranium was reconstructed from approximately 150 fragments.

Our aim is to provide the best possible facsimile models of the most important hominid finds for the general public, educators and students, using the best reference material available. Each hominid has been carefully researched and re-created based on some or all of the following: casts of original fossils, the latest literature (descriptions and/or published measurements), input from the scientific community and full colour, life-size photographs. Every effort has been made to accurately re-create anatomical details of colour, size, shape, reconstructed areas, and bone/fossil texture. The hominids offered in this series are high quality, artistic recreations that can be advantageously used by educators as important visual aids in the classroom and appreciated by the general public. They are not intended for advanced graduate work nor to be measured for research purposes.
