85217 Bilzingsleben           Discovered 1992 Oct. 31 by F. Börngen at Tautenburg.
About 370 000 years ago in the middle glacial period, an anthropoid Eurasian group bilzingslebenensis, belonging to the species Homo erectus, settled on a lake near Bilzingsleben, today in Thuringia. Since 1969 sensational findings have been made at this place by D. Mania and collaborators.
