Dating and the 50 year old man
These were identified as the oldest Cro-Magnon (or EEMH) remains ever discovered, dating from 43,000 to 45,000 years ago.
Radiocarbon dating yielded an age of 30,150 ± 800 years, making it one of the oldest Cro-Magnon finds. Compared to Neanderthals, the skeletons showed the same high forehead, upright posture and slender (gracile) skeleton as modern humans.The Oase 1 mandible was discovered on February 16, 2002.A nearly complete skull of a young male Oase 2 and fragments of another cranium (Oase 3) were found in 2005, again with mosaic features; some of these are paralleled in the Oase 1 mandible.Numerous tools were with the skeleton as grave goods.Genetic analysis of mt DNA yielded the haplogroup H, the most common group in Europe.Later, during 2005, the Oase 3 fragments were assigned as being part of the same individual as Oase 2.
In concurrence with the mixed physical traits, DNA sequences from the mandible shows 6-9 % Neanderthal ancestry in fairly long continuous portions, indicating Oase 1 had a Neanderthal ancestor as recent as 4-6 generations back.
A complete anatomically modern human (AMH) male skeleton was discovered in 1823 in a cave burial in Gower, South Wales, United Kingdom.
It was the first human fossil to have been found anywhere in the world.
By the 1970s, the term was used for any early modern human wherever found, as was the case with the far-flung Jebel Qafzeh remains in Israel and various Paleo-Indians in the Americas.
concerning the migrations of early humans have contributed to a refined definition of this expression.
In 2011, the fossil was tested and redated to at least 41,500 years old and confirmed to be Cro-Magnon, making it the earliest anatomically modern human (AMH) fossil yet discovered in northwestern Europe.
