An international study has found that the Chinese people originated not from Peking Man in northern China, but from early humans in East Africa who moved through South Asia to China some 100,000 years ago, Hong Kongs Ming Pao daily reported yesterday in a finding that confirms the single origin theory in anthropology.

According to the newspaper, a research team led by Jin Li (of Fudan University in Shanghai has found that modern humans evolved from a single origin, not multiple origins as some experts believe.

In China, school textbooks teach that the Chinese race evolved from Peking Man, based on a theory that humans in Europe and Asia evolved from local species.

But Jin and his fellow researchers found that early humans belonged to different species, of which only the East African species developed into modern humans.

This new finding nullifies the theory that the ancestors of the Chinese people were Peking Man who lived in northern China 400,000 years ago.

Based on DNA analyses of 100,000 samples gathered from around the world, a number of human families evolved in East Africa some 150,000 years ago, said Li Hui, a member of Jins team.

About 100,000 years ago, some of those humans began to leave Africa, with some people moving to China via South and Southeast Asia, Li said.

According to the newspaper article, it has been proven that the 65 branches of the Chinese race share similar DNA mutations with the peoples of East and Southeast Asia.

It said that the Shanghai scientists were part of an international team comprised of researchers from Russia, India, Brazil and other nations in a five-year project studying the geographic and genealogical routes related to the spread and settlement of modern humans.

It's not just you. Although I have yet to see a Maya man with cornrow.

How about a Mayan Man in a cornrow instead?

If the Africans did go to the Maya lands and the reverse should not technology also move as well. Depending on period Ancient Egypt was a bronze age to an early iron age culture. Now take the Maya - stone age. Aztec - late stone age, early bronze age tech. Inca - late stone age, early bronze age tech.

Would not there been a tech revolution in the new world IF there was contact?:deadhorse:

Would not the Maya, Aztec, etal be improved if they had bronze swords, bronze spears, and other bronze arms and armor? :evil:

Then when the Spanish and the other Europeans arrive - they would be facing down Hoplite warriors with the same kit as they had in ancient Greece - it would have at least made a more fair fight. But instead the Spanish destroyed the Mayan civilization reducing it into a Third World nation.
