A trove of 47 fossil human teeth from a cave in southern China is rewriting the history of the early migration of our species out of Africa, indicating Homo sapiens trekked into Asia far earlier than previously known and much earlier than into Europe. Scientists Wednesday announced the discovery of teeth between 80,000 and 120,000 years old that they say provide the earliest evidence of fully modern humans outside Africa.Liu said the teeth are about twice as old as the earliest evidence for modern humans in Europe.It may have been hard to take over land Neanderthals had occupied for hundreds of thousands of years, Martin?n-Torres said.
