    KNM-KP 29283 is a nearly complete adult maxilla that exhibits signs of weathering1. Although the lateral incisors (not pictured) were recovered separately, nearly all teeth for the specimen are present except the left first incisor and the right third molar. The maxilla is broken into two halves along the midline, and articulates together anteriorly.
