About this hominid:
The fossil range of H. ergaster mainly covers the period of 1.8 to 1.7 million years ago, with a handful of older and younger specimens extending the range to about 2 and 1.5 million years ago respectively. The Homo ergaster skull KNM-WT 15000, also known as "Nariokotome Boy" and "Turkana Boy" was discovered in 1984 in Nariokotome, Kenya. The first fragment was found by K. Kimeu and the rest of the skeleton was excavated by R. Leakey, Walker and their team. It was first described by Brown, Harris, Leakey and Walker in Nature in 1985 as H. erectus. The completeness of this skull allowed scientists to determine an estimated cranial capacity of 880cm³, however this could have been as high as 909cm³ had Turkana boy reached adulthood. With approximately 40% of the skeleton recovered, anthropologists were able to gain a great deal of information regarding body size, limb proportions, and growth rates of Homo ergaster.

The anthropology fossil skull replica of Homo Ergaster is perfect for a hominid skull collection, as an anatomical home decor, as a historical gift, as a museum exhibit or for teaching aids to university or school.
