Keilor

Keilor

 

a site where the bones of a fossil man (skull and several skeletal bones) were found near the village of the same name, 18 km northwest of Melbourne, Australia.

The bones were discovered in 1940 in river sediment at a depth of about 6 m. The skull is dolichocephalic and has a large brain capacity (1,593 cu cm) and a long vault; the eyebrow arches are not prominent. The face is low and protrudes forward (prognathism). According to radiocarbon dating it is not older than 20,000 years. The Keilor skull belongs to a modern type of man (Neoanthropinae). It is similar to the skulls of Australian aborigines except for the greater length of the vault and the narrower nose.
