A Middle Pleistocene human tibia from Hoedjiespunt, Western Cape, South Africa


Journal Article

A 200-350 KYR BP human tibia has been recovered in association with craniodental remains from the Hoedjiespunt site near Saldhana Bay. The tibia is morphologically similar to other Middle Pleistocene human tibiae from Africa and Europe, indicating a substantial degree of postcranial morphological homogeneity across the western Old World at this time.
