In evolution it has always been thought that the form of humans seen nowadays is not the primer form. Humans are thought to be evolved due to natural selection to help adapt to the conditions in our current world.
This research was taken further by a team from the University of Huddersfield, together with researchers from the University of Cambridge and the University of Minho in Braga. Both teams were led by Professor Martin Richards at Huddersfield and Dr. Pedro Soares in Braga, along with the eminent Cambridge archaeologist Professor Sir Paul Mellars.
The study believes that the current form of humans first evolved in Africa 300,000 years ago. The dates are not very precise as other studies believe that e existed only 100,000 years ago. However, through these years many different observations acted as evidence to proof human nature and interactions were similar to the modern human.
According to Professor Mellars, “This work shows that the combination of genetics and archaeology working together can lead to significant advances in our understanding of the origins of Homo sapiens.”
The latest study showed that the modern form was found in southern Africa by the name of Khoi-San. This species of humans is expected to existing from a total of 70,000 years ago. However, so far there has been no proof of any expansion to other countries and continents outside of south Africa to the modern homo sapiens.
The study is expected to be taken further to discover more proof of the origins of the modern humans. The expansion of the Modern Homo Sapiens to the rest of the world is yet to be found in many expected discoveries.
