Origin of Humankind – in Africa after all?
11. August 2017
Recently we reported of 7.2 million year old fossils that were found in Bulgaria and Greece and the accompanying hypothesis, that the origin of humankind might have been somewhere in Europe. Now however, scientists have discovered a fossil in Kenia which is 13 million years old and thus supports that humans and apes originated from Africa.
The well-preserved fossile skull of an ape shows how the common ancestor of modern humans and modern apes might have looked like.
