The Homo neanderthalensis (Child) skull, Teshik-Tash, was discovered by A. Okladnikov in Uzbekistan in 1938. This skull helped establish the easternmost range of Neanderthals. It has been suggested that this skeleton was buried in a ritual fashion. With an estimated age of 9 years, this child had matured enough physically to exhibit distinctive Neanderthal characteristics, such as a large face and nasal area, a long, low cranium, a mandible without a chin, and a maturing browridge. The original cranium was reconstructed from approximately 150 fragments.
