Middle to Upper Pleistocene
100,000 years old

This skull bears similarities to one found in North Africa of an early Neanderthal with a jutting prominent ridge on the top jaw and an elongated thick walled skull. These skulls are often found broken at the base to extract the brain in order to eat it. It is certain that Neanderthal man was a cannibal and evidence has been found in the remains of settlements that show these skulls were often used as trophies.
