    • ...In fact, the earliest isotopically well dated fossils attributed to our species, from the Kibish Formation of the Omo River and from Herto, Middle Awash, both in southern Ethiopia, have suggested estimated ages of 200–190 kya and 160–154 kya respectively. These are quite consistent with the timeframe independently inferred from the above-mentioned genetic studies. H. sapiens spread from Africa to southern Eurasia by approximately 100 kya, and by about 50–30 kya appears to have replaced, apparently with no interbreeding, all the continental Eurasian human variants that had evolved from the earlier dispersal of H.erectus, such as the well-known Neanderthals in Europe. However, the spread of H. sapiens was not limited to Eurasia, as its mobility and technology very soon allowed colonization of Australia, and, later, near the end of the last glaciation, of the Americas [...
