In 1933 a team of workers building a bridge in Northern China dug up a strange skull.
Nicknamed "Dragon Man", the specimen represents a human group that lived in East Asia at least 146,000 years ago. The skull’s unusual features have sparked fierce debate about where exactly it fits on the human family tree. Could it represent a primitive form of Homo sapiens, Neanderthals or a different species entirely? Join Chris Stringer and Alison Shean as we uncover the fascinating story of Dragon Man.
