“Dragon Man” with Prof. Chris Stringer!!!

What do we have here?

A hominid skull no doubt! But….what species?

Large brow ridge….vaulted skull….Neanderthal? No….not quite. Erectus? No couldn’t be.

So what is this?

This is the #Harbin #Skull, found in the Dragon River region of Northeastern China before WW1. To keep it safe, the discoverer hid it in a well, on his death bed told his family where to find it.

And there it was, 84 years later!

So…why don’t we know what it is? Well…:there are a few reasons, and we could be looking at a whole new addition to the human lineage.

But I guess you will have to check out my chat with Chris Stringer, an expert, and collaborator with the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Basically, an insider. And one of the few who can actually reveal some of these answers. Not much, as much of it is still under review. But some.

But check out what we have to talk about Monday the 15th.

We will post it on our website, YouTube, Twitter, and of course here on our Facebook Page!

  1. Check spelling and typographical errors when writing for the public. The definitions did not make the distinction clear.

    1. So you’re offering to help edit right? Otherwise stfu. I’m a college student, with a job, and probably does a lot more sci comm than you. If there is a typo, be a big person and just scroll on. You’re not writing this comment to be critical. You’re writing it to be an ass. Sit down.
