Skeletal remains found in Egypt - ET
CAIRO – 25 May 2021: An archaeological study presented by Khaled Saad under the title "Prehistoric Human Tools" revealed the age of the oldest human being on earth, which is estimated to be a million and a half years old.
But, what remains of Homo sapiens has man actually discovered?
The oldest human being in Europe:
In 2020, tooth and bone remains were found in a cave in Bulgaria, indicating the oldest trace of Homo sapiens in Europe to this day.
The analysis of the relics found in the Bacho Kiro cave in northern Bulgaria indicates the history of the existence of Homo sapiens or modern humans in the European continent extends along about 45,000 years, according to two articles published by "Nature" and "Nature Ecology and Evolution".
Skulls in Morocco:
The remains of five Homo sapiens, who lived in North Africa at least 300,000 years ago, were discovered at Mount Igud, Morocco.
This disclosure is very important in rewriting human history, in light of the new facts and evidence it has revealed.
According to the scientists that jointly made the discovery, it introduces a new concept that the evolution of modern humans took place in all parts of the African continent, emphasizing that the idea that evolution began in East Africa, or the "one cradle of humanity" idea, is not acceptable anymore.
The results reported in two research papers published in the famous science journal Nature this week stress that the discovered fossils represent the oldest fossils of Homo sapiens known to date.
Skeletons in Egypt:
The oldest skeleton, about 52,000 years old, has been found in Egypt. The skeleton of the thermos belongs to a 10-year-old child.
That is in addition to another skeleton that was found in the Nazlat Khater area, dating back more than 35,000 years BC.
It was acquired by the Belgian University of Leuven mission, which worked during the eighties in the villages of Tahta, Sohag. The mission took the skeleton with it for restoration and study, but in 2018 Egypt succeeded in retrieving it. It is currently displayed in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.
