Professor Richard Klein about the Human Story
Professor Richard Klein, my favorite paleoanthropologist, sent me a recent article he wrote about the current research on the human story. Out-of-Africa is what that story, that hypothesis is called.
Once upon a time people who looked like us lived in Africa. But they didn't think or behave like us, until ... about 50,000 years ago. And then something sparked in human beings, something amazing that would change the fate of the world until now.
Here is Professor Klein's paper titled "Modern Human Origins" from the journal General Anthropology, Volume 20, Number 1, Spring, 2013. To read the paper in PDF form, click on this link:
