Skull of Homo erectus from Sangiran Java. The earliest fossils of Homo erectus, or a more primitive ancestral form Homo ergaster, date back to 1.8–1.9 million years ago, in Kenya. Homo erectus has been identified as having been present in tropical areas of the Old World soon after this, and later still in temperate areas of Asia and Europe.
Skull of Homo habilis from Lake Turkana, Kenya. Homo habilis is the earliest known species of the genus Homo; that is, the first human species. It existed from approximately 2.2 to 1.6 million years ago in east Africa. Only a few fossil remains have been discovered so far, but these specimens exhibit a clear trend toward larger brain size.
