Eugene dubois (1858-1940) discovered the first homo erectus fossils. While he was growing up, the idea of evolution was becoming very widespread and popularly debated among regular people. Most people believed that africa was the place to go if you wanted to find fossils. Dubois decided to go the dutch east indies (indonesia). He began to look around riverbanks, where the ground had been eroded because of the water. The first homo erectus fossil was found in trinil, java. The first fossils of homo erectus from trinil were a femur and a skull cap. However, the skull cap was not as recent as the femur.
