Calvarium is female Kennedy 1991. 22 characters of home erectus are present like sagittal keel, separation of Inion from endinion. Well developed mastoid fissure, uninterrupted supraorbital Torus. Strongly developed occipital torus.

But features like small mastoid p rocess, narrow post orbital constriction, prominent bilateral Torus angularis are uniquely present in Asian homo erectus. Kennedy 1991 classify the skull cap as archaic Homo sapiens Because cranial vault is relatively doll. Cranial capacity is between 1100 and 1400 cc. Maximum cranial length falls superior to inion.

Sankhyan think it is closer to home heidelberg.
