Israel: Significant Discovery Key to Human Evolution
Dr. OMRY BARZILAI stands inside the Manot Cave at the location of recent discoveries. A 55,000 year old human skull uncovered in the Manot Cave in the Western Galilee proves, according to scientists, that modern humans (Homo Sapiens) migrated from Africa to the rest of the world some 65,000 years ago. Researchers consider the skull, the earliest fossilized evidence outside of Africa, "one of the most important discoveries in the study of human evolution".
