Last quote by Jean-Jacques Hublin

To me it's quite striking is that the reason why we connect these people to us is their face, the way they look. It's people we would recognise like us if we would cross them in the street.feedback

Jean-Jacques Hublin has most recently been quoted in an article called Re-writing history: 'oldest Homo sapiens fossils' discovered. Jean-Jacques Hublin said, “There is one issue which is the timing and the place. So the timing is much older than we thought. It's not 200,000 (years). It's probably more than 300,000 (years). Then there is the notion that our species, by this time, was already represented all over Africa and not just in a little Garden of Eden somewhere.”. Jean-Jacques Hublin has been quoted a grand total of 16 times in 9 articles.

Why did they come here? They brought their toolkit with them and they exhausted it. The tools they brought with them have been resharpened, resharpened, and resharpened again. They did not produce new tools on the spot. It might be that they did not stay that long, or maybe it was an area they would come to do something specific. We think they were hunting gazelles, there are a lot of gazelle bones, and they were making a lot of fires.feedback

The idea is that early Homo sapiens dispersed around the continent and elements of human modernity appeared in different places, and so different parts of Africa contributed to the emergence of what we call modern humans today.feedback

It's rather a desolate landscape, but on the horizon you have the Atlas mountains with snow on top and it's very beautiful. When we found the skull and mandible I was emotional. They are only fossils, but they have been human beings and very quickly you make a connection with these people who lived and died here 300,000 years ago.feedback

This is a really extraordinary claim. There are questions about everything. Let's imagine it happened. We have humans in America 130,000 years ago. What happened to them? They disappeared? When humans arrived in Australia, they were immediately very successful because they had no competitors. In the Americas, there is a huge range of environments where humans could be very successful. But to this date we have nothing in America until modern humans arrive.feedback
