How to use "Zinjanthropus" in context?
Zinjanthropus is an extinct genus of hominin that lived around 2.3 million years ago during the Pleistocene epoch. The genus is known from the mandible-a provenance that allowed for its description-and a fragment of the maxilla. The genus was first described by Raymond Dart in 1947, based on a jawbone and fragment of the maxilla discovered in Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania. The jawbone is the most complete hominin fossil found to date. The genus is named after the Zinj tribe in Tanzania where the jawbone was found.
