Archaeology is Catching Up

Evidence recently revealed in China suggests The Matriarchy’s calendar of the dispersal of Homo sapiens 180,000 years ago to be closer to reality than that of established opinion.

A report published by the BBC in October 2015 written by BBC science editor Paul Rincon states that scientists working in Daoxian, south China, have discovered teeth belonging to modern humans that date to at least 80,000 years ago which is 20,000 years earlier than the accepted “Out of Africa” migration that led to the successful peopling of the globe by our species.

Details of the work are outlined in the journal Nature – in which Dr María Martinón-Torres of UCL is quoted as saying: ‘We need to re-think our models. Maybe there was more than one Out of Africa migration.

Of course there was Dr María Martinón-Torres. There was a constant flow of human traffic through the region fueled by changing climate and the constant need for food and water. The need for my family to rethink models created from years of careful research and analysis has never existed because we were there. Our memories reach back to The Beginning when The Matriarchy evolved when our fore mothers developed the ability to communicate with the child in the womb and subsequently to pass their memories to future generations

Mr Rincon’s report though has great value in reminding us of the vulnerability of science devoid of speculation. He points to the following:

Several lines of evidence – including genetics and archaeology – support a dispersal of our species from Africa 60,000 years ago.

Early modern humans living in the horn of Africa are thought to have crossed the Red Sea via the Bab el Mandeb straits, taking advantage of low water levels.

All non-African people alive today are thought to derive from this diaspora.

Now, excavations at Fuyan Cave in Daoxian have unearthed a trove of 47 human teeth.

In what Rincon calls a ‘Game Changer’ Dr María Martinón-Torres states, “It was very clear to us that these teeth belonged to modern humans [from their morphology]. What was a surprise was the date,” she told BBC News.

“All the fossils have been sealed in a calcitic floor, which is like a gravestone, sealing them off. So the teeth have to be older than that layer. Above that are stalagmites that have been dated using uranium series to 80,000 years.”

This means that everything below those stalagmites must be older than 80,000 years old; the human teeth could be as old as 125,000 years, according to the researchers.

In addition, the animal fossils found with the human teeth are typical of the Late Pleistocene – the same period indicated by the radioactive dating evidence.

Some fossils of modern humans that predate the Out of Africa migration are already known, from the Skhul and Qafzeh caves in Israel. But these have been regarded as part of a failed early dispersal of modern humans who probably went extinct.

However, the discovery of unequivocally modern fossils in China clouds the picture.

So there we have, set in stone no less, irrefutable science denying solid research and analysis.

“Some researchers have proposed earlier dispersals in the past,” said Dr Martinón-Torres.

“We really have to understand the fate of this migration. We need to find out whether it failed and they went extinct or they really did contribute to later people.

“Maybe we really are descendents of the dispersal 60,000 years ago – but we need to re-think our models. Maybe there was more than one Out of Africa migration.”

Rincon goes on to secure comments on the Doaxian find from other luminaries from Harvard and the Natural History Museum agreeing with the “game-changer” scenario in the debate about the spread of modern humans. In particular the earlier dispersal of modern humans into the Levant, recorded by the fossils from Skhul and Qafzeh about 120,000 years ago, that was considered a failed dispersal comes under review. The teeth from Daoxian seem unquestionably modern in both size and morphology, and look to be accurately dated by uranium-thorium methods to at least 80,000 years. This opens the discussions to the possibility of a separate dispersal of more modern humans Which of course I know to be true. We make clear In the Beginning that the Indus Valley was the cradle of modern humans and that dispersals to the north, south and east were constant.

The fact that the discoveries in Doaxian are in no way new to the Matriarchy does not detract from their value, or from that of Paul Rincon’s comprehensive reporting, because between them they open doors. While archaeology and anthropology remain a poor second to the pursuit of financial reward humans must remain ignorant of their origins – ignorant, that is, until The Matriarchy ascends to power once more.
