This unique replica is supplemented by having it displayed on a pedestal that contains a relief map of the geographical area where the specimen was found.
The Broken Hill or Kabwe skull model is the finest casting produced from scientifically made copies of specimens featured in the collection at the Institute of Anthropology and Human Genetics for Biologists at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University, Frankfurt/Main, Germany. This means that all the details in each anthropological skull can be reproduced absolutely accurately.
It is an example of the early human, of the species Homo sapiens rhodesiensis or a Homo erectus rhodesiensis, the skull having features that point to both these classifications. For this reason, there is debate in the estimates of the early human specimen's age, based on differing scientific assumptions.
An early example of an ancient Homo sapiens (as classified by Henke and Rothe 1994) or a Homo erectus rhodesiensis.
