This box tells the story of hominid evolution. Using skull casts of three distinct hominid species, explore how scientists use various measurements to distinguish between the different genus and species within the hominid family tree. Create a hominid family tree and hold replicas of some of the first tools used by hominids during the early Stone Age.
