  • Early Modern Humans in Israel 175 kya--195kya

    NY Times 1/26/18----Israeli researchers have reported an early modern human jawbone found by Mount Carmel, It is dated from 177 kya to 194 kya. A previous finding went back to 120 kya. This pushes back the earliest 'out of Africa' migration for homo sapiens. Early modern humans tended to be more robust than present day humans. It was not clear if dna tests were possible.

    I did not mean to imply that this early modern homo sapien group were our direct ancestors. Dna analysis would help but it is unlikely that dna samples can be obtained.

      No reference was listed, but the paper was by Hershkowitz and Weinstein-Evron
