    Classify Skull and Reconstruction

    I found it on the website of a museum located in Vienna.

    Unfortunately I also know nothing about it except the short description given. When I tried to interview the responsible authors via email, nobody answered.

    First of all, the reconstruction shown of the fleshed out head--that absolutely sucks. Notice the large, almost round nasal aperture. Notice the nasal bones and their angle. Now follow this line and connect it to the bottome of the nasal aperture. This produces a larger, fleshier nose. It also is set slighly forward as in many Europeans and most Neanderthals. Also notice the gonial angle and the reconstruction in which this angle is less acute. My opinion is this is a gracile UP of the Cro-Magnon type but the reconstruction has been made to look more Nordic or perhaps more Med. than the bones indicate.

    The reconstruction is overly prognathous compared with the skull.

    Indeed, it prows out too strongly, while the skull clearly suggest a tucked-in face.

    Compared to the Neanderthalers modern man has a flatter face, although the Predmost sample steps out of line and shows a slightly inflated facial structure, but vastly in diminution.
