Homo erectus

University of California Press

This chapter examines the postcranial remains of hominids from the Daka Member. The sample comprises three femora, one tibia, and one talus. The tibia and femora are presented with descriptions of their preservation and anatomy relative to comparative specimens. Specific femoral features are discussed with respect to their occurrence in the Daka femora, in other early Pleistocene Homo specimens, and in a sample of femora from a robust modern human population. The talus is only briefly presented, as it was discovered in late 2005 and has not yet been cleaned for detailed study. The chapter compares Daka Member postcrania to a set of specimens from the early and middle Pleistocene that have been assigned to early Homo or Homo erectus.
