This study presents a description and comparative analysis of Middle Pleistocene permanent and deciduous teeth from the site of Qesem Cave (Israel). All of the human fossils are assigned to the Acheulo-Yabrudian Cultural Complex (AYCC) of the late Lower Paleolithic. The Middle Pleistocene age of the Qesem teeth (400-200 ka) places them chronologically earlier than the bulk of fossil hominin specimens previously known from southwest Asia. Three permanent mandibular teeth (C(1) -P(4) ) were found… Expand
New Middle Pleistocene dental remains from Qesem Cave (Israel)

Fossil human remains from Bolomor Cave (Valencia, Spain).
TLDR
The fibular fragment shows thick cortical bone, an archaic feature found in non-modern (i.e. non-Homo sapiens) members of the genus Homo, and all the fossils from Bolomor are attributed to the Neandertal evolutionary lineage. Expand
The dental remains from the Early Upper Paleolithic of Manot Cave, Israel.
TLDR
The outcome could not supply conclusive evidence to address the question of whether Manot Aurignacian population came from Europe or descended from the local Ahmarian population. Expand
The Qesem Cave hominin material (part 1): A morphometric analysis of the mandibular premolars and molar
TLDR
The approach based on three dental traits from three tooth types is able to distinguish quite well between dental specimens from anatomically modern humans (AMH) and Neanderthals (NEA), and confirms an intermediate morphology of Mid-Pleistocene specimens in general, and the close proximity of Ehringsdorf to NEA.

Human teeth from securely stratified Middle Stone Age contexts at Sibudu, South Africa
The fossil record of early Homo sapiens in the African Pleistocene remains sparse. In contrast to its prominent position regarding the cultural evolution of our species, southern Africa plays aExpand
A dental perspective on the taxonomic affinity of the Balanica mandible (BH-1).
TLDR
The plesiomorphic character of BH-1 is consistent with several competing models of Middle Pleistocene hominin evolution and provides an important regional and temporal example for reconstructing morphological changes in the mandible and teeth during this time period. Expand
Middle Paleolithic and Uluzzian human remains from Fumane Cave, Italy.
TLDR
The human teeth from Fumane Cave increase the sample of Italian fossil remains, and emphasize the need to develop new methods to extract meaningful taxonomic information from deciduous and worn teeth. Expand
Early Pleistocene hominin deciduous teeth from the Homo antecessor Gran Dolina-TD6 bearing level (Sierra de Atapuerca, Spain).
TLDR
The study of the deciduous dentition confirms the mosaic pattern of H. antecessor morphology revealed in previous studies of this hominin sample, and provides some information on the evolutionary status of this species. Expand
Brief communication: two human fossil deciduous molars from the Sangiran dome (Java, Indonesia): outer and inner morphology.
TLDR
Virtual imaging and quantitative assessment of inner morphology and tissue proportions support an attribution to the taxon Homo, and a preliminary allocate both specimens toH. Expand
Modern human teeth from Late Pleistocene Luna Cave (Guangxi, China)
Abstract We present two previously unreported hominin permanent teeth [one right upper second molar (M2), one left lower second molar (m2)] from Lunadong (“dong” = “cave”), Guangxi Zhuang AutonomousExpand

Dental size variation in the Atapuerca-SH Middle Pleistocene hominids.
TLDR
The Middle Pleistocene Atapuerca-Sima de los Huesos (SH) site in Spain has yielded the largest sample of fossil hominids so far found from a single site and belonging to the same biological population, suggesting that canine size sexual dimorphism in Homo heidelbergensis was probably greater than that of modern humans.

The Atapuerca dental remains. New evidence (1987-1991 excavations) and interpretations
Abstract The metrical features and some morphological traits of 133 permanent teeth from the site "Sima de los Huesos" (Sierra de Atapuerca, Burgos, Spain) are analysed and compared with those ofExpand
Dental remains from Atapuerca-TD6 (Gran Dolina site, Burgos, Spain).
TLDR
Dental evidence indicates that the TD6 hominids are clearly distinct from Asian H. erectus and could represent an evolutionary connection between H. ergaster and H. heidelbergensis, as well as suggesting an evolutionary continuity between the population represented by these Hominids and the European Middle Pleistocene population. Expand
Human remains from Valdegoba Cave (Huérmeces, Burgos, Spain).
TLDR
Systematic excavations at the Valdegoba cave site in northern Spain have yielded the remains of five individuals associated with a Middle Paleolithic stone tool technology and Pleistocene fauna, showing a combination of archaic characteristics as well as more specific Neandertal morphological traits. Expand
Discrete trait and dental morphometric affinities of the Tabun 2 mandible.
TLDR
Results indicate that Tabun 2 is best seen as part of the Near Eastern late archaic human lineage with only the mentum osseum and incisure shape indicating any approach to the Qafzeh-Skhul humans within thenear Eastern Middle Paleolithic. Expand
A closer look at Neanderthal postcanine dental morphology: The mandibular dentition

  • 2002
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that Neanderthals are not only unique in their pattern of dental trait frequencies but that they present several dental autapomorphies, as well, which include a high frequency of the mid‐trigonid crest in lower molars and unique morphology of the lower premolars.

Analysis of the dental morphology of Plio-Pleistocene hominids. IV. Mandibular postcanine root morphology.
TLDR
Annual assessments of the root morphology of the 'robust' australopithecines from Swartkrans suggest that the premolar root form of Australopithecus (Paranthropus) robustus is not obviously intermediate between the presumed ancestral condition, and the 'molarised' mandibular premolars root systems of Australo-Pleistocene hominids.

Abstract A morphological and comparative study of 68 human fossil teeth from the “Sima de los Huesos” (Sierra de Atapuerca, Ibeas de Juarros, Burgos, Spain) is presented. The Ibeas teeth shareExpand
Hominin lower second premolar morphology: evolutionary inferences through geometric morphometric analysis.
TLDR
Results indicate that external shape variation is closely related to the configuration of the occlusal morphological features and influenced by dental size, and the external and internal shapes of P4 are polymorphic but still useful in depicting a primitive-derived gradient. Expand
Uranium series dates from Qesem Cave, Israel, and the end of the Lower Palaeolithic
TLDR
Dates obtained by uranium isotopic series shed light on the temporal range of the Acheulo-Yabrudian and the end of the Lower Palaeolithic, suggesting a long cultural phase between the LowerPalaeolithic Acheulians and the Middle Palaeocene Mousterian phases. Expand
