Yesterday and today have been slow days as far as anthropology news.

But no worries, I’ve been scouring the internets for content and came across Mauricio Antón’s portfolio of paleontological illustrations. He’s drawn up some entertaining but run-of-the-mill representations of humans and their ancestors, such as these Ergasters on a hunt, this antecessor collage, and a reconstruction the Bodo cranium into a portrait of a hominin.

But this family portrait of Atapuerca humans is not a normal paleoanthropological illustration. It is hilarious. I love how he took something modern, like a family photo, and made applied it to prehistoric humans. Made my day.
