Java Man not so old after all

    Press/Media: Expert Comment

    Description

    The oldest human remains in Southeast Asia aren’t as old as we thought they
    were. An Indonesian-Japanese team of scientists has overturned a decades-old estimate of Homo erectus remains from Central Java in Indonesia, shaving off several hundred thousand years from the age of the globe-trotting hominin, the first to disperse out of Africa.
