Abstract: <p>The purpose of this study is to highlight some metrical and morphological characteristics of the endocranium, allowing for a distinction of evolutionary stages in fossil hominids. The sample under study consists of Javanese <i>Homo erectus</i> skulls. Results obtained clearly show differences between both of the chronological groups studied, particularly with respect to the question at which point in time areas involved in speech production become apparent and how those regions can be identified in endocasts.</p>
