Phys.Org has a report on the development of humanity in the Orient. It can be found at Fossil finds in China are challenging id...osest relatives

The report details some new fossil finds in China and their impact on the current theories of the evolution of mankind. Some find that fossils between 900,000 and 125,000 years ago showed a mix of features between Homo erectus and Homo sapiens. Some interpret this as an Asian source for modern humans. However, the genetic studies seem to clearly indicate modern humans did evolve in Africa.

There are some people who feel that the Chinese scientists are partially driven by political considerations, or the not-invented-here syndrome. The idea is that they are trying to make Asia more important in the evolution of mankind.

There are still many unanswered questions about the evolution of man in the Orient. China is spending a lot of money to promote the search for fossils.
