Eyasi

Archaeological site found in 1935 at Njarasa near Lake Eyasi in Tanganyika (now Tanzania), dated to 35 kya, (although some suggest the site could be Middle Pleistocene). The site contains hominid remains, including parts of an archaic 1255 cm3 cranium and maxilla, and an occiput and other fragments of a second individual found by Ludwig Kohl-Larsen. These specimens were originally attributed to Africanthropus njaransensis, and were often compared both to Peking Man and to the Neandertals.
