An international team of scientists announced that analysis of a skull which was discovered in 1952 in South Africa, revealed the first fossil evidence that modern humans left African main land somewhere in between 65,000 and 25,000 years ago. The age of the skull was determined by testing the radiatino levels of the sand which was present in the brain compartment. They calculated the age of the to be about 36,000 years old. This time matches with the oldest skulls found in Europe, asia and Australia. The appearance was also simmilar. Thus it supports the theory that the humans originated in sub-Saharan Africa and fanned out from there.
