          Abstract

          Histomorphometric analysis of a medial midshaft chip from the Middle Pleistocene (ca. 500 ka BP) hominid tibia from Boxgrove, U.K. provides a modal age-at-death estimate at the end of the fourth decade of life. This makes Boxgrove 1 one of the older known and systematically aged Middle Pleistocene hominid specimens, and it reinforces the pattern of an underrepresentation of older adults observed in Middle and Late Pleistocene archaic Homo samples.
