Solo Man

Thomas Menk – Composer

Solo man prehistoric human known from 11 fossil skulls (without facial skeletons) and 2 leg-bone fragments that were recovered from terraces of the Solo River at Ngandong, Java, in 1931–32. Cranial capacity (1,150–1,300 cubic centimetres) overlaps that of modern man (average 1,350 cu cm). The skulls are flattened in profile, with thick bones and heavy browridges forming a torus, and the limb bones are indistinguishable from those of modern man. Skull bases were broken, indicating that the heads may have been taken as trophies and the brains eaten. Solo man has been thought to date to the Late Pleistocene—possibly during the last glaciation (about 15,000 to 20,000 years ago)—but his age remains uncertain. © Wikipedia
