There were the Homo tibia and skull bones from Boxgrove and Swanscombe, respectively, and, now identified as anatomically modern human
more than 40 000 years old, the maxilla from Kent's Cavern (Higham et al.
Villa and Roebroeks scrutinized nearly a dozen common explanations for Neanderthal extinction that rely largely on the notion that the Neanderthals were inferior to anatomically modern humans
and found that none of the hypotheses were supported by the available research.
Our analysis indicates this lineage diverged from previously known Y chromosomes about 338,000 ago, a time when anatomically modern humans
had not yet evolved," reports Michael Hammer, associate professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
For example, he contends that it is key to the survival of anatomically modern humans
Existing in the European fossil record from approximately 400,000 to 30,000 years ago, Neandertals are likely to have come into contact with anatomically modern humans
for the last 50,000 years of their existence.
Neandertals, or Homo neanderthalensis, appeared about 300,000 years ago and anatomically modern humans
, Homo sapiens, appeared about 250,000 to 200,000 years ago.

The scientists wrote yesterday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, ``This discontinuity is difficult to reconcile with the hypothesis that both Neanderthals and early anatomically modern humans
contributed to the current European gene pool.
Waters said these findings are a surprise because most researchers had thought sophisticated survival skills came into wide use among ancient human-like animals only with the appearance about 150,000 years ago of anatomically modern humans
11 ( ANI ): Researchers have claimed 300,000 years before the emergence of anatomically modern humans

This project targets the shift and variability of human adaptive systems in the scope of the dispersion of the Anatomically Modern Humans
(AMHs), from the African continent to throughout Eurasia 60,000 years ago.
