The Homo heidelbergensis lived from about 700,000 yrs ago to 200,000 yrs ago. These were the first early humans to venture into the cold latitudes of Europe, were the first species to build shelters, and hunt big game animals with wooden spears. European populations of this species were the direct ancestors of the Homo neanderthalensis, NOT Homo sapiens.

Homo heidelbergensis - an extinct species of the genus Homo which lived in Africa, Europe and western Asia from at least years ago. It survived until about to years ago.

So far we have unearthed fossil evidence from more than 20 different human-like species, known as hominins, who are more closely related to humans than any of the apes alive today.     Meet some of our oldest relatives below and discover what insights they can provide about our own evolution.

Homo heidelbergensis, Kabwe, Zambia, 1921. Discovered by Tom Zwiglaar, Between 300,000 and 125,000 years old. Shows features similar to H. erectus such as a low braincase profile, large brow ridges, a slight widening of the midface known as the sagittal keel, and a protrusion at the back of the skull named the occipital torus,  also resembles modern humans with a flatter, less prognathic face, and larger brain
