300.000 years old modern humans at Jebel Irhoud

Nature 546, 289–292 (08 June 2017) doi:10.1038/nature22336

The idea that modern people evolved in a single “cradle of humanity” in East Africa some 200,000 years ago is no longer tenable, new research suggests. Fossils of five early humans have been found in North Africa that show Homo sapiens emerged at least 100,000 years earlier than previously recognised.
