<nowiki></nowiki>Homo gardarensis<nowiki></nowiki> was the name mistakenly given to partial humanoid remains found in a burial at Garðar, Greenland, which is a 12th-century Norse settlement. 
Original statements compared the remains to Homo heidelbergensis but this identification was subsequently disproved. The bones were classified as the remains of a contemporary human who suffered from acromegaly, and put away at Panum Institute in Copenhagen.


In 1927 an archaeological dig by the Museum of Copenhagen investigated Garðar. During the excavation of the thumb|257x257px">thumb|257x257px Garðar Cathedral Ruins, a large jawbone was found, as well as a large skull fragment. These were sent to the laboratory of Professor F. C. C. Hansen [da] in early 1927.<sup>[2]</sup> He believed that the bones were that of a 40 or 50-year-old Norseman who had reverted to type. He published a preliminary account in the newspaper "Berlingske" in 1929. {{Stub}}
