It would be interesting if human remains were easier fossilized so that we had a more complete record of Homo sapiens earlier endeavors..

The fossil is of a finger bone believed to belong to Homo sapiens

New research suggests that modern humans were living in Saudi Arabia about 85,000 years ago.

A recently discovered finger bone believed to be Homo sapiens was dated using radio isotope techniques.

This adds to mounting evidence from Israel, China and Australia, of a widespread dispersal beyond Africa as early as 180,000 years ago.

You read and hear anything from 60 to 70 thousand years ago for the departure of the brave few from Africa and some articles claim a much earlier record or theory. This new sight had found tools indicating a presence of Homo Sapiens but no bones until now.

The climate in Saudi Arabia 85,000 years ago was very different to the modern day.

Monsoon rains created lush lakes, inhabited by animals much like hippos. Wild cattle and antelope also appear to have migrated from Africa at this time.

The fossil record at Al Wusta shows a rich variety of animal life, alongside stone tools that closely resemble those used by Homo sapiens.

Now that is some serious climate change, No ?

Which way did they say the finger was pointing?

Ah: towards an unknown past.
