Discovery of ‘Dragon Man’ Skull in China May Add Species to Human Family Tree
Was the missing link just discovered in China?! This massive skulled ancient human is a new species in the tree. More from The New York Times:
The skull belonged to a mature male who had a huge brain, massive brow ridges, deep set eyes and a bulbous nose. It had remained hidden in an abandoned well for 85 years, after a laborer came across it at a construction site in China.
The researchers named the new species Homo longi and gave it the nickname “Dragon Man,” for the Dragon River region of northeast China where the skull was discovered.
