Article Title: In to Asia
This informative article deals with the topic of ancient humans that resided in Asia . The author starts with how Modern humans arose only once, in Africa . They then spread across Eurasia some time after years ago, replacing whatever indigenous populations they met with no interbreeding. This is the ‘Out of Africa’ model.
Many new hominin fossils found over the past decade, particularly in China, are now tentatively dated as older than 60,000 years, calling into question the idea that modern humans migrated out of Africa only 60,000 years ago. And he further gives the examples of the same and tries to unravel the mystery of ancient men in Asia through the new available findings. The author then details about the facts from the recent findings and concludes that still there is a tremendous amount of research that needs to be done in Asian paleoanthropology.
