摘要：A fossil human skull was discovered in a small gully near Jiefang village in Dali District, Shaansi Province in March, 1978. It is between Homo erectus and Homo sapiens in morphology and is better preserved than all of the fossil skulls of H.erectus and early H.sapiens found in China.
A joint team of IVPP, Panpo Museum and Northwest University hade excavated the Dali Man Site which is situated in the third terrace of Lohe River from October through November last year. Some animal fossils and 181 pieces of stone artifacts had been found from the site in basal gravel of the terrace. The fauna includes mammals, fishes and some kinds of molluscs. Artefacts are mainly small scrapers roughly retouched.
From the founal and strtigtaphical evidence Dali Man is inferred to be living in a warm and wet environment in the terminal part of middle Pleistocene.
