Abstract

In May of 1993, a new well-preserved hominid skull was recovered from the Bapang (Kabuh) Formation of the Sangiran region, Central Jawa. In this paper, we provisionally describe the skull and compare it with <i>Homo erectus</i> crania from Jawa and China. The new skull possesses a series of characteristic features of Asian <i>H. erectus</i> in overall size and shape of the vault, the expression of various ectocranial structures, and other details. Among three geographical and chronological subgroups of Asian <i>H. erectus</i>, the new skull shows affinities with the Jawanese Early Pleistocene subgroup (specimens from the Sangiran and Trinil regions), as expected from its provenance.
