Sambungmacan

An archaeological site found in 1973 on the Solo River in central Java, originally dated to about 900-800 kya (Kabuh Formation) and containing hominid remains including partial (SM 1,3) and nearly complete calvaria (SM 4) attributed to Homo erectus (originally to Pithecanthropus soloensis). Later reassessment of matrix materials yielded a possible much younger estimated date of 100-27 kya. Aka Sambungmachan, Sambungmatjan.
