The adult Homo erectus brain size ranged from around 750 to 1250 cm3, averaging about 930 cm3. This was only around 69% the size of modern human brains on average but 50% larger than Homo habilis. The upper end of the Homo erectus brain size range overlapped that of modern people. However, the larger brained Homo erectus mostly were relatively late in time and are considered by some paleoanthropologists to be a more recent human species (Homo heidelbergensis or early archaic humans).
The results obtained show that the main specific characteristics of the brain of Homo sapiens are found in the fossilised specimens. However, they also show that the brain has decreased in size and has been reorganised in our species over the last 30,000 years. Today, our brain is smaller, lower and compressed at the level of the frontal and occipital lobes, while the temporal lobes and the cerebellum have become enlarged compared with our predecessors. This demonstrates the anatomical plasticity of the brain of Homo sapiens, as well as the complexity of the relationships between its size and shape and its cognitive capacities.

I also live in Europe, and I dream of going to the pacific northwest for some wildernes trekking/camping. You have a lot of knowledge about sasquatch, I could have sworn youre from the US or Cananda!
We are just to densely populated here in Europe.

If you have some extra time, I found a video on youtube here that really did make me rethink the whole bigfoot theory.
close to 2 hours long, many of you I am sure do not have the time to watch this video at its length. Those who do will find it very much worth their time to listen and understand.
