Although extremely fragmentary as evidence, this spinal column clearly represents an upright and erect being. Cervical lordosis was highly likely, while thoracic kyphosis was clearly undeniable, appearing only slightly more stretched downward into the lumbar region than ours today. It is appropriate to consider the human variability in this matter: the sagittal angle of its curvature can be estimated to be between 30° and 40°. Lumbosacral lordosis is also present but, however, clearly reduced due to the thoracolumbar stretch.

Lumbosacral lordosis is also present but, however, clearly reduced due to the thoracolumbar stretch. In addition, lordosis is slight, with a curvature of between 40° and 55°. Furthermore, it is quite probable that the spinal cord had had a lower cervical dilation and lower lumbar component (transversal diameter of T2 triangular and large; sagittotransversal index of the L4 vertebral hole quite high). 2 Pelvis Half of the pelvis of the AL288 skeleton is very well preserved. The proportions of this pelvis are human-like; however, its anatomy differs in a certain number of particularly interesting features and in their functional consequences, which we shall touch upon briefly.
