Ancient teeth found in China challenge modern human migration theory
(CNN)Scientists in southern China have discovered human teeth dating back at least 80,000 years -- 20,000 years earlier than modern humans were previously believed to have left Africa to migrate around the world.
The 47 teeth were found in a cave in Daoxian, in China's Hunan province, and are the strongest proof yet that modern humans first migrated from Africa to Asia 80,000 to 120,000 years ago, according to a study published in the journal, Nature.
