Neanderthal mandible, plaster cast
R. F. Damon and Co (estab. 1850)
Plaster cast of a partial mandible from a Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis). The mandible was discovered by paleontologist Édouard Dupont in 1866, along with an ulna, in Naulette Cave in Belgium. These casts were bought by the Anatomy Department in the early 1900s to use as teaching specimens in classes on human anatomy and evolution.
