    The earliest known humans in Europe may have been found in a Bulgarian cave

    https://www.sciencenews.org/article/...-kiro-bulgaria

    Newfound Homo sapiens remains date to between about 46,00044,000 years ago, researchers say


    A tooth and six bone fragments found in a Bulgarian cave are the oldest directly dated remains of Homo sapiens in Europe, scientists say.

    Until now, most of the earliest fossils of humans on the continent ranged in age from around 45,000 to 41,500 years old. But those ages are based on dates for sediment and artifacts associated with the fossils, not the fossils themselves. The newfound remains date to between roughly 46,000 and 44,000 years ago, researchers report May 11 in Nature.
