From fossil skulls to tool technologies, the history of the hominids is written in stone. The Hominid Fossil Repository serves as a guide to identifying fossil hominid specimens and the tools used by some of our earliest ancestors. This repository will serve as a visual assist in the recognition of the type specimens for students just beginning their life-long interest in our fossil ancestors.
