Scattering of Human Beings in Asia
A new study conducted by scientists from the UK suggested that the first structurally modern humans arrived in the region of South Asia. The study suggested they might have arrived around 70,000 years ago. They might have got fragmented into smaller pieces or groups creating settlers along the regions like Africa.
However, another veteran has provided a contradictory statement and has suggested that there still is an excessive shortcoming of evidences that might illustrate the dispersion of humans into the region.
Bringing in application a perfect blend of genetic and archaeological evidence, the researchers suggested that modernly existing human beings have left the eastern Africa after 70,000 years ago and got scattered along the coast to the region south of the Himalayas.
The researchers who initiated and directed the research included University of Cambridge archaeologist Professor Paul Mellars and geneticist Professor Martin Richards, from the University of Huddersfield.
The research is considered to be the latest shower for the most talked of topic of debate about the scattering of human being all around the globe. The controversy gets serious in the case when it is the question about the southern part of the Asian continent. The research was honored and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
