Oldest human remains in Europe found in the Mani

Post by omegendorph » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:42 am

Apidimia cave is just south of Areopolis - the excavation and find itself dates from the 1970s, but recent analysis with new technology has shown the skull to be far older than expected, and therefore the oldest hominid remains in Europe...

210,000-year-old human skull in Greece is the oldest found outside Africa : https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/10/worl ... index.html
