The highly publicized genetic studies that purportedly “proved” that Neanderthals did not contribute the modern human genome are so plagued with practical and theoretical problems to make their conclusions moot, especially since it does not in any way address the rest of the populations in the world, and their genetic fate.
Europe No part of these descriptions will favor one camp over the other; this being said, multiregionists have a very valid criticism of the supposed lack of any evidence of continuity between earlier and later fossil groups in geographic regions.
The general opinion among researchers seems to go in cycles, supporting Oo A, then supporting , then supporting Oo A, etc.
For example, multiregionalism is often portrayed as a racist theory that claims different “races” have evolved to different “levels” of intelligence.
Whereas in the previous species have been introduced with historical background and a discussion of the early, most important finds, and the individuals responsible for the species designation, this introduction will focus on some of the theory implicit in the discussion of the origin and spread of Most researchers currently accept the statement that “modern” humans can be considered to date to approximately 200–250 kyr.
Others (such as Milford Wolpoff), take the view that our species extends as far as approximately 2.0 myr, subsuming .
This certainly holds true for Europe, where the perceived differences between the earlier Neanderthal populations and later “modern” H. There are many sites which are attributed to what are called “early modern humans” are not always particularly older than “fully” modern humans, nor later than Neanderthal sites.
As discoveries have continued over the last century Neanderthals are now clearly associated with Upper Paleolithic sites, and “modern” humans are no longer an Upper Paleolithic history of the interpretation of the European fossil record is marred by the fact that early attempts to demonstrate continuity by researchers such as A. Schwalbe were troubled by misdated specimens and faulty reconstructions, while early attempts to demonstrate replacement were based on the Piltdown hoax and the misdated Galley Hill material.
Multiregionalists look for similarities between populations in the same geographic location that are separated spatially, while people who follow replacement look for differences.
