Homo neanderthalensis Skull Shanidar 1, Half Scale
TSBH-050 $139.00

(Base Included)

40,000 to 73,000BP. This skull was found in Shanidar in Northern Iraq by Solecki in 1957. This individual was about 40 years old and survived many injuries during his life including healed fractures to the left side of the skull and a crippling injury to the right side body. Though the sequence of these traumas are uncertain, it is thought that they occurred years before his death, which suggests some type of altruistic care among Neanderthals.

Reduced scale models decrease the overall height, width and depth of the model in the same proportion compared to the original. Smaller scale models may appear smaller than one might expect because the volume they occupy, or amount of space they take up, is so far less.

Compact and affordable, these beautifully proportioned and finished scaled down fossil hominid skulls are perfect for the space and budget-minded, the amateur anthropologist, or simply for the enthusiastic collector. A great gift for your favorite educator or for yourself!
