We did not, Homo Erectus Invented "Modern" Living?

So it was the Homo eructus that invented modern living. It was not the humans? It is fascinating that this discovery shows that the social modern living of humans is what we got from the Homo Eructus.

Thus the use of tools, family living, speech, and other human behaviour are not human as we thought but we have evolved into homo sapines due to the evolving social behaviour of homo eructus.

It’s long been thought that so-called modern human behavior first arose during the middle Stone Age, in “modern” humans—Homo sapiens.

But a new study suggests modern living may have originated roughly 500,000 years earlier—courtesy of one of our hairy, heavy-browed ancestor species.

At the prehistoric Gesher Benot Ya'aqov site in northern Israel, researchers have found the earliest known evidence of social organization, communication, and divided living and working spaces—all considered hallmarks of modern human behavior.

The former hunter-gatherer encampment dates back as far as 750,000 years ago, and must have been built by Homo erectus or another ancestral human species, archaeologists say. Homo sapiens—our own species—emerged only about a couple hundred thousand years ago, fossil record suggest.

At the site, researchers found artifacts including hand axes, chopping tools, scrapers, hammers and awls, animal bones, and botanical remains buried in distinct areas.
