Quick Reference

An early inhabitant of Britain, named after a village in Kent, England, where three skull bones were discovered in river gravels in 1935, 1936, and 1955. They are dated at around 250,000 years ago. The skull seems closely related to a skull from Steinheim in Germany; both probably represent late neanderthals (Homo neanderthalensis) or Homo heidelbergensis.
