Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD - AP

HOMO sapi­ens ap­peared at least 260,000 to 350,000 years ago — that’s the con­clu­sion be­ing drawn from a new fos­sil find in Morocco. Pre­vi­ously, the old­est known fos­sils from our species were a bit less than 200,000 years old, from Ethiopia. For the new work, sci­en­tists stud­ied DNA ex­tracted from hu­man re­mains found in South Africa.
