Reconstruction of "Heidelberg Man", Homo heidelbergensis, now used to refer to hominines intermediate between H. erec-tus/ H. sapiens/ H. neanderthalensis: lived from ~800,000 to ~300,000 yrs ago. H. heidelbergensis is morphologically very similar to Homo erectus but had a larger brain-case, about 93% the size of that of Homo sapiens. The holotype of the species was tall, 1.8 m & more muscular than modern humans Harbin, Heidelberg, Hominid, Human, Kunst, Outline, Homo Habilis, Historia, Ancient
