I really like that mix of ancient and more modern features.

The chin is not as prominent as in a lot of modern Homo sapiens but it is more pronounced than the folks that came before.

I'd like to see additional dating, but otherwise this looks pretty good. A lot better than that recent claim out of England.

Re: Humanity... Not so intelligent perhaps
But man was fairly dumb for a very long time

You are trying to equate savagery (a cultural condition) with intelligence. They are not the same.

A modern group of people cast away on a remote island would probably end up as savages within a few generations, while remaining as intelligent as other Homo sapiens.

Perhaps you should study some science and leave the religion stuff alone for a while?
