DNA Hints At Earlier Human Exodus From Africa

DNA Hints At Earlier Human Exodus From Africa

Submitted by • September 22, 2016 www.bbc.com

Present-day people outside Africa were thought to descend from a group that left their homeland 60,000 years ago. Now, analysis of nearly 500 human genomes appears to have turned up the weak signal of an earlier migration. But the results suggest this early wave of Homo sapiens all but vanished, so it does not drastically alter prevailing theories of our origins.
