The latest discoveries suggest that modern-day ancestors come from Africa and Asia, where they have moved around the Earth.
The skull found in China could change the understanding of human evolution, according to scientists who studied it, which was discovered in China 40 years ago.
The skull belonged to a human ancestor homoeoretus and preserved surprisingly well. That skull has unusual similarities with modern homo sapiens, and novel research suggests that a similar sample was found in Morocco.
Most anthropologists believe that human species appeared in Africa 200,000 years ago and that one group separated 80,000 years later and spread throughout the world. But the new research opens up the possibility that people have developed in East Asia, not just in Africa.
Perhaps there have been periods of intense interference when those early Asian people went to Africa and vice versa, this would mean that modern humans are composed of DNA from the ancestors of Africa and Asia. Many well-known academics have rejected these theories for years, and some even claim to have been invented to emphasize the role of China.
However, the new discovery sheds a completely different light on the development of the human race. There are certain possibilities that early modern people were not isolated in one place, while their characteristics were developed, but spread throughout the world.
Genetic material exchange between early humans in Africa and those in East Asia may have occurred, according to scientific portals.
