Fossils from all over Africa have modern and ancient traits in varied combinations, including the 260,000-year-old Florisbad skull from South Africa; the 195,000-year-old remains from Omo Kibish in Ethiopia; and the 160,000-year-old Herto skull, also from Ethiopia. Some scientists have argued that these remains represent different subspecies of Homo sapiens, or different species altogether.”
Homo Sapiens is a class name, an organizing tool, a generalization. We’re similar creatures, not the same. This new theory is great. But I suggest that the full story may not limited to Africa. Africa has very dry areas, so bones can survive for long periods. It is all very interesting.
