Abstract
On March 13th, 1994, during digging for the construction of a highway through the Campo Grande area near Ceprano, a town in southern Latium situated about 55 miles from Rome, highly mineralized fragments of a calvarium damaged by a bulldozer were found in situ by Italo Biddittu, a member of the Italian Institute of Human Palaeontology. The remains come from a clay layer below sandy volcaniclastic gravels whose age is estimated by K-Ar to be 700 Kyr. So, the age of the calvarium is to be estimated as over 700 Kyr and probably slightly over 800 Kyr. The shape and the capacity of the calvarium show the basic features of Homo erectus.
