Ooops ... my bad.

I said "Bostwick Man"

I meant "Boskop Man" ... brain fart.

Maybe if my own brain were 20% larger, I wouldn't have brain farts!

Anyway, here is a link, and where did these hominids fit in the tree?

They fit in right where we do, Homo Sapiens Sapiens. Their brains weren't 20% larger, the estimates(because the skull is far from complete and consisted of frontal and parietal bones, with a partial occiput, one temporal and a fragment of mandible) is 1700-2000 cc which is within normal range for an adult HSS.


John Hawks says "The portrayal of "Boskops" in the Discover excerpt is so out of line with anthropology of the last forty years, that I am amazed the magazine printed it. I am unaware of any credible biological anthropologist or archaeologist who would confirm their description of the "Boskopoids," except as an obsolete category from the history of anthropology."[2] He does note that the Web editor at Discover replied that 'the excerpt was intended to run identified as a "controversial idea, but that context didn't come across as intended."', and that "[t]he web page has been changed to make that context clear".
