An international team of researchers has determined the age of the last known settlement of the species Homo erectus, one of modern humans’ direct ancestors. The site is called Ngandong, on the Indonesian island Java. The team dated animal fragments where Homo erectus remains were found and the surrounding landscape. The team determined the last existence of Homo erectus at Ngandong between 108,000 and 117,000 years ago.

That could be a Twilight Zone movie !!!

Think about the implications of this. At around 110,000 years ago, there are at least six intermixing species of Homo spread around the world from Africa to Europe to Asia. All with similar intelligence, technology, language, culture, and tool making industry. Then at 40,000 years ago only Homo Sapiens are alive - us.
