An­ces­tors may have ori­gins in China

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A mon­u­ment was set up in the Eosimiid fos­sil site in Mianchi county on Wed­nes­day. Re­search has shown that th­ese re­mote an­ces­tors of hu­mans may have lived at the site 45 mil­lion years ago, ac­cord­ing to the lo­cal gov­ern­ment. Eosimiid fos­sils, with char­ac­ter­is­tics of higher pri­mates, were found in the county. Some pa­le­oan­thro­pol­o­gists be­lieve that the area is one of the ori­gin ar­eas of the oldest hu­man an­ces­tors.
