7-million-year fossils uncovered in Greece, Bulgaria
Researchers have unearthed the fossil remains of pre-humans in the Balkans, which suggests the birthplace of humankind might not be Africa.
An international team discovered two fossils in Greece and Bulgaria which they believe belong to early humans. The fossils, which have human-like teeth, are more than seven-million years old. The team says this means the lineage of human ancestors can be traced back to Eastern Europe, not Africa as previously thought, according to presstv.
The researchers used computer tomography scans to create images of the internal structure of the tooth and jawbone.
The team is searching for the remains of lots of different species to learn as much as possible about this area’s history.
