12-Million Y/O Hominid Had Modern Face, Say Researchers

June 3, 2009

Spain (ChattahBox) – A new discovery has given a few more clues into the mysteries of evolution, after scientists found a fossilized face, complete with jaw, in Spain, Science Daily reports.

The face offers a look into the evolutionary link that led to modern hominids, including humans. The biggest shock was the fact that the face was flat, rather then protruding, and the features much more similar to hominids found now, rather then others 12-million-years ago.

The find has led researchers to believe that modern hominids may have actually originated from Eurasia, specifically from African-origin apes.

The study has been published in the most recent issue of the science journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
