Triceratops and Gilgamesh,
from the wiki link that I provided yesterday:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recent_African_origin_of_modern_humans
a lot of different views and theories, until now not yet a founded unified theory...
for instance: multiregional origin of modern human
multiple dispersal model: two outs of Africa...
From the wiki article:
Other scientists have proposed a multiple dispersal model according to which there were two migrations out of Africa, one across the Red Sea and along the coastal regions to India
(the coastal route), which would be represented by haplogroup M. Another group of migrants with haplogroup N followed the Nile from East Africa, heading northwards and crossing into Asia
through the Sinai
. This group then branched in several directions, some moving into Europe and others heading east into Asia. This hypothesis is supported by the relatively late date of the arrival of modern humans in Europe as well as by both archaeological and DNA evidence. Results from mtDNA collected from aboriginal Malaysians called Orang Asli and the creation of a phylogentic tree indicate that the hapologroups M and N share characteristics with original African groups from approximately 85,000 years ago and share characteristics with sub-haplogroups among coastal southeast Asian regions, such as Australasia, the Indian Subcontinent, and throughout continental Asia, which had dispersed and separated from its African origins approximately 65,000 years ago. This southern coastal dispersion would have occurred before the original theory of dispersion through the Levant approximately 45,000 years ago.
This hypothesis attempts to explain why haplogroup N is predominant in Europe and why haplogroup M is absent in Europe. Evidence of the coastal migration is hypothesized to have been destroyed by the rise in sea levels during the Holocene
Alternatively, a small European founder population that initially expressed both haplogroup M and N could have lost haplogroup M through random genetic drift
resulting from a bottleneck
(i.e. a founder effect
Today at the Bab-el-Mandeb straits
, the Red Sea
is about 20 kilometres (12 mi) wide, but 50,000 years ago sea levels were 70 m (230 ft) lower (owing to glaciation) and the water was much narrower. Though the straits were never completely closed, they were narrow enough and there may have been islands in between to have enabled crossing using simple rafts.
125,000 years old have been found in Eritrea
indicating the diet of early humans included seafood obtained by beachcombing
And from a French forum that I also attend I read today this:http://www.nature.com/articles/nature16544.epdf?referrer_access_token=o5aDmvgYtIGYL2LdpEGlJtRgN0jAjWel9jnR3ZoTv0MInt_2jYvKBG--7sOqWdGTzUvToNHVvyhzE6mZLLgJJk-xwPlVu6cq_cgI4vcmhH2utoks_DbU5ieQAjiolCiOIQT10JeCT708MMEwLfMWg5GggbX6-6lZdnndQHTnvIcR5fAY4dyuZxaGTMgxuLcr&tracking_referrer=www.bbc.com
