The dragon’s skull is very large, but the size of the brain is about the same as the average size of our human brain.

Chinese researchers have revealed an ancient human skull to the public, which may belong to a completely new human population.

The research team claimed that among the known ancient human populations such as Neanderthals and Homo erectus, this is the closest relative in evolutionary history.

This specimen, nicknamed “Dragon Man,” represents the human population that lived in East Asia at least 146,000 years ago.

Someone discovered this specimen in Harbin in northeastern China in 1933, but it has only recently attracted the attention of scientists.
