A 210,000-year-old skull has been identified as the earliest modern human remains found outside Africa, putting the clock back on mankind's arrival in Europe by more than 150,000 years, researchers said Wednesday.

In a startling discovery that changes our understanding of how modern man populated Eurasia, the findings support the idea that Homo sapiens made several, sometimes unsuccessful migrations from Africa over tens of thousands of years.
Crazy how many pieces of the puzzle have been slotted in just in a couple of years.

New Species of Early Human Is Even Smaller Than the 'Hobbit'


There is more than one Hominin exodus from Africa. Also need to distinguish between the archaic and early-modern Homo sapiens leaving Africa. A bit like your Ruckman/Fullback Neanderthal and your Rover/forward pocket genius. Personally I think Homo erectus is the most important Hominin member. Even though Homo erectus is as old as 1.8 million years, the large skull and adaptation of walking upright was a game changer. A line was drawn at the center circle for the center bounces.

Modern day humans are quite rare in the way they are categorised being the only species remaining and having no sub species. With the inclusion of the above recent discovery of a dwarf hominin member, the total number that have existed is 9 (or is it 10?). All are extinct apart from Modern Homo sapiens.

Race is a human socio-political construct based on things like demographics and neuroses and has no basis in Genetics or taxonomy.

So what are all the wars about?
