Introduction: In this project, I am going to explain six skulls which my instructor wants me to monition in this project. I went to more than five websites to find the best resources for this project. In addition, what I have learned from my class in Anthropology 104. First, I will explain each skull

and find some information about it. Also, I have to explain at last three characteristics. After that, I will state the age of each species in evolutionary order form the oldest to the youngest. Next, I will cause the family tree and I will put them in the order and I will mention the age and the gander. We have to know more and more about the skulls. I will try to find the information and pictures for each skull that I will explain to make my paper good and organized. Australopithecus robustus was first bare and named by the eminent Dr. Robert Broom. The A. robustus leftovers generally are from three sites: Swartkrans, Dreimulen, and Kromdraai (with the aforementioned Sterkfontein specimen possibly included.) By far the largest of these sites is Swartkrans. One of the major problems with these South African sites is dating, but generally, robustus remains can be safely placed from 2.0-1.0 myr, and possibly even earlier. Australopithecus robustus has many features that are different from another Australopithecus. This kind has very thick jaws; small incisors, canines, large, molar-like premolars and very large molars. The height of Australopithecus robustus is between 1.1-1.3
