The Dmanisi skull, also known as Skull 5 Homo Sapien or D4500, is one of five skulls discovered in Dmanisi, Georgia and classified as early Homo erectus. Described in a publication in October 2013, Skull 5 Homo Sapien it is estimated to be about 1.8 million years old and is the most complete skull of a Pleistocene Homo species, and the first complete adult hominin skull of that degree of antiquity. According to researchers, the discovery “provides the first evidence that early Homo comprised adult individuals with small brains but body mass, stature and limb proportions reaching the lower range limit of modern variation.”

It has been the cause of a paleontological controversy that is still ongoing as of 2017: many hominin fossils thought to be from different species such as Homo rudolfensis or Homo habilis may not have been separate species at all. Rather, they may have been a single evolving lineage.

Despite a brain volume the size of a large Australopithecus male, all the characteristics of Homo erectus are clearly visible on the skull.

The cranial superstructures , which are prominent and massive, suggest that it was probably a male. The Skull 5 Homo Sapien face is one of the largest of any human ancestor discovered to date. The zygomatic arches are massive with the right one displaying many traces of deformations, probably due to fractures and injuries. Researchers estimate that the height of the skull was between 4.79 ft. and 5.45 ft. and his weight between 104 to 110 lbs.

In 1991, Georgian scientist David Lordkipanidze found traces of early human occupation in the cave at Dmanisi in Georgia: a hamlet and an archaeological site about 56 miles southwest of the country’s capital, Tbilisi. Since then, five early hominin skulls have been discovered at the site. Found in 2005, is the most complete specimen of them all. After further analysis, it was coupled with its mandible (D2600) found 5 years earlier. The final analysis of the discovery took many years and was only published in 2013.
