Subject: [Ancient-Mysteries] homo-like skull
I think you might find this new discovery interesting :
Summary : In July 2005, a small Primate skull was discovered in the
desert of Tafilalet near Erfoud ( Marocco ). It was in the sand of a
marble quarry where Devonian fossils were already found. Subsequently,
the skull could be around 360 million years old. Characteristic
features in the only 6.9 cm high and 3,9 cm broad fossil indicate the
genus Homo : a globular forehead and hind skull, and an inferior
position of the occipital hole under the cranium, which is typical for
upright body posture. The fossil was called Homo alaouite, in homage
to the Alaouite Dynasty.
