"The current study demonstrates African-like affinities in the body shape of the Qafzeh-Skhul hominids.This finding is consistent with craniofacial evidence (Brace 1996) and with zooarchaeological data indicating the presence of African fauna at Qafzeh (Rabinovich and Tchernov 1995; Tchernov 1988, 1992)" (p.64).At this time, the Indian Ocean monsoon system was forced northwards, bringing rainfall into Arabia.
Recent archaeological evidence indicates that between 130,000 to 100,000 years ago there was an exit of anatomically modern humans out of Africa into the Americas and Eastern Eurasia.
This view is supported by the discovery of African artifacts in the Middle East, Brazil, and Crete, and 80,000-100,000-year-old human teeth in China.
In the interview Marks noted that: "A comparison of contemporaneous Paleolithic assemblages from the north showed they totally lacked the bifacial tool production found at assemblage C. An origin in east Africa for assemblage C people therefore was most plausible based on the stone tools and how they were made." Archaeologists believe that the Oo A exit to Arabia may have been overland.
The discovery of African artifacts in Crete and Brazil dating to 100 thousand years ago indicate AMH used boats to reach these areas. Strasser and Eleni Panagopoulou found 2,000 stone artifacts on the southwestern shore of Crete at Plakias dating to around 125 thousand years ago. Runnels, an archaeologist working in the region said the tool kit included hand axes, cleavers, and scrapers made in the Acheulean style.
From the point of view of someone who can actually make an Aschulaen hand ax, I would have to say that the heavy matrixing (the veins of inclusions throughout the stone) makes it VERY unlikely that these "tools" are of human manufacture.
