Researchers in Germany and Greece have documented evidence of the history of the first Homo sapiens in Europe. Researchers from the Universities of Tübingen and Athens said they had succeeded in using new methods to estimate the life of a skull that had been found in the 1970s in southern Greece.

The researchers said the skull was about 210,000 years old and said the skull had the characteristics of modern humans, meaning that the age of the first sane person may be much larger than believed.

An ancient cave in southern Greece where the skull was found.

It was thought so far that Homo sapiens went about 60,000 years ago from Africa to Europe.

The researchers reported in the report published by the journal "Nature", the existence of another discovery of bone remains, in southern Greece, was classified as a skull for Neanderthal man 170 thousand years ago. The researchers announced further research of bone debris from the region, stressing the importance of the Southern Europe region to monitor human development.

In a previous study last year, scientists said that the remains of bones and teeth belonging to Homo sapiens found in a cave in the Galilee town date back to 177 to 194,000 years. It is strange that they discovered these bones next to bones belonging to the Neanderthals. Studies suggest that the Levant and Turkey were the crossing point of the wise man to southern Europe.
