Modern man is usually dated back to 75,000 years ago. Of course, we know about Lucy who has been mentioned above. She is a pre-human. Dated to about5 2.7 million years ago.
Via Google: Oldest human footprints found. Italian scientists find three human footprint trails that were made 350000 years ago.

Archaeologists found the footprint, imprinted on mud and then hardened into rock, while exploring a prehistoric site in Siwa, a desert oasis.

I do think that mankind has been in this planet for a very long time.

Ha ha this is so funny.
The Bible suggests that Adam and eve lived only a little over 4,000 years ago.
The Mitochondrial Eve theory based on DNA holds that we all had a common ancestor. The Mitochondrial_Eve is suggested to have lived anywhere between 385,000 years ago and 140,000 years ago depending whose theory you listen to.
Even worse, Mitochondrial Adam is suggested to have only turned up 60,000 years ago... Hey one up for the femminists (alternately Nature could have decided to replace women as a failed experiment ha ha)
I know that fossil remains have pushed back early humans to at least one million years ago.
The real interesting footprints come from a river somewhere in USA, where a layer was exposed revealing human footprints and dinasour footprints in the same geological stratum...
Explain that one ?

Personally, I believe God created Adam then Eve first. The rest of the geneology of Genesis outlines the patriarchs of every middleastern, N.African, S. Europe, and W. Asian country. The emphasis throughout the Bible is ultimately focused on the line of Jesus successfully from Abraham and through David.

I'm curious and nobody has yet provided an answer to a couple of questions, maybe you, as someone who believes in god can :
1. Who was the second woman?
2. Who were her parents or was she created like Eve?
It really has nothing to do with this discovery.
