Peking Man - Video Learning - WizScience.com
"Peking Man" , "Homo erectus pekinensis", is an example of "Homo erectus". A group of fossil specimens was discovered in 1923–27 during excavations at Zhoukoudian near Beijing , China. In 2009 the finds were dated from roughly 750,000 years ago, and a new 26 Al/ 10 Be dating suggests they are in the range of 680,000–780,000 years old. Between 1929 and 1937, 15 partial crania, 11 mandibles, many teeth, some skeletal bones and large numbers of stone tools were discovered in the Lower Cave at Locality 1 of the Peking Man site at Zhoukoudian, near Beijing, in China. Their age is estimated to be between 500,000 and 300,000 years old. The most complete fossils, all of which were calvariae, are: Most of the study on these fossils was done by Davidson Black until his death in 1934. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin took over until Franz Weidenreich replaced him and studied the fossils until he left China in 1941. The original fossils disappeared in 1941, but excellent casts and descriptions remain. Swedish geologist Johan Gunnar Andersson and American palaeontologist Walter W. Granger came to Zhoukoudian, China in search of prehistoric fossils in 1921. They were directed to the site at Dragon Bone Hill by local quarrymen, where Andersson recognised deposits of quartz that were not native to the area. Immediately realising the importance of this find he turned to his colleague and announced, ""Here is primitive man; now all we have to do is find him!"" Excavation work was begun immediately by Andersson's assistant Austrian palaeontologist Otto Zdansky, who found what appeared to be a fossilised human molar. He returned to the site in 1923, and materials excavated in the two subsequent digs were sent to Uppsala University in Sweden for analysis. In 1926 Andersson announced the discovery of two human molars in this material, and Zdansky published his findings. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.
