Perhaps even more significant, the researchers suggest that the entire timeline for hominin (ancient human) presence in east China should be shifted back earlier in time and should be continuous (without the gap), based on updated research. This includes the advent of H. erectus at more than 400 ka old, rather than the current 230 ka; archaic H. sapiens at more than 200 ka, instead of ca. 110 ka; and the emergence of AMH at around 100 ka or earlier.
The new timeline for human evolution in China is in disagreement with the molecular clock that posits a late appearance for AMH in eastern Asia. More solid skeletal discoveries, along with parallel studies in relevant disciplines are needed to reconcile the geochronology and the molecular clock and to finally address the tempo and mode of recent human evolution in China. With rich cultural and fossiliferous deposits often intercalated with speleothem formations in limestone caves, and with fruitful discoveries in the past dozen years from surveying, excavating, and dating human fossil and artifact-bearing sites

I wish the evolution monkeys would finalise their fairytale. Now teachers have got another 50,000 years to fudge the figures to their students.

Hi there Hans,
Darn, so that was Delmar man, and I am familliar with both of those re dating studies.
Thanks for keeping it real, not as much fun but real.
Amway the rest of the book has some fantastic reading.
