8. This pre-human actually co-existed with modern Man, but
only in areas of Europe and Central Asia- according to the
fossil record. At one point, it was believed to have been in our
human evolutionary path. It's former designation as 'Homo
Sapien' was dropped and replaced by this name. Similarity with
modern humans included: similar anatomy, rudimentary
language, technology use, development of culture. (2 words)
10. The study of human beings and their ancestors. Physical
characteristics, culture, environmental interaction & social
relations as well.
11. There is a debate that the fossil evidence of this creature
can either support the existence of a separate species of pre-
human (known as "Skillful Man), or a sub-species of an already
identified creature. (2 words)
12. This term reflects an attribute of humans and their pre-
human ancestors usually identified by bipedal adaptations.
They are represented today by one species, Homo sapiens. the
term excludes apes.
13. Famous family of archaeologists and anthropologists (20th
C.- East Africa). Credited with fossil discoveries adding to our
understanding of Man's evolutionary development.
14. One of three areas within which evolutionary changes were
evident between major pre-human stages. This area refers to
internal and external structural appearance of the body.
15. The study of material remains (as fossil relics, artifacts, and
monuments) from past plant/ animal life as well as human life
and activities.

1. A later stage of pre-human evolutionary development is
represented by this creature. The fossil record of this hominin
shows the development of a larger skull and use of
technology. Evidence shows it migrated out of Africa to the
colder latitudes of Europe and Asia, using fire for warmth,
protection, and cooking food. (2 Words)
2. Stands and travels on two feet.
3. This example of technology could help explain the growing
dominance of Homo Sapiens over other pre-human
competitors as well as larger animals.
4. An early stage of pre-human evolution is represented by
this creature. The fossil record of this hominid shows the
development of an opposable thumb, larger skull, and wider
hips (upright stance). It's most famous representative was
named "Lucy".
5. An accepted assumption (supposition) for the purposes of
explaining a phenomena. The assumption is based on data
that indicates that the supposition may be ‘fact’. The
assumption falls short of being a fact (or Law) because the
data can be incomplete, inconclusive, or contradictory to
existing facts or suppositions.
6. This climatic change ~40,000 BP may have given modern
Man (Homo Sapien) an advantage over the last pre-human
species. (2 words)
7. A term used to describe the relative thickness of fossil
bones.
8. This term was used in the past to describe early humans
and their ancient ape ancestors exhibiting the attribute of
bipedalism. Today, this term has been replaced with another
when talking about humans and their non-ape ancestors.
(Archaeological Inst. of America)
9. (Two words) The process by which individual organisms
with favorable traits are more likely to survive and reproduce
than those with unfavorable traits.
