The The Homo erectus skull in the photo below was discovered at the Sangiran site, which is in Indonesia on the island of Java, in the late 1930s. Note that it has been reconstructed from numerous fragments. Its fractured state is the result of an unfortunate offer by paleoanthropologist G. H. R. von Koenigswald, leader of work at the site, to pay for fossils by the piece. Workers broke the skull up to make more money. Perhaps he should have paid by weight?
