The Multiregional Continuity Model of human evolution contends that after Homo emfus left Africa and dispersed into other portions of the Old World, regional populations (including Neandertals) slowly evolved into modern humans. Neandertals are in the ancestry of modern humans as are the other archaic peoples of the late Pleistocene The Replacement Model C.B. Stringer (skeletal biologist) A. Wilson and R. Conn (genetists) This model asserts that modern humans evolved relatively recently in Africa, migrated into Eurasia and replaced all populations which had descended from Homo erecfus. Initially based on skeletal biology, more recently genetic data (often mitochondrial DNA) has been used to support this model. Neandertals are extinct cousins of modern humankind as are the other non-African archaics Genetic information does not group Neandertals within modern humans. 2,; m m not. w, n it, I But the only early modern human skeleton that has been evaluated yields similar results. 0.18 my Vertical forehead with weak hmwridge (Homo sapiens) blade technologies occur in Africa earlier than elsewhere Earliest evidence of modern people Herlo, Ethio u ia Modern humans migrafe our of Africa in a series of waves during pas? 100,000 years replacing and/or assimilating more archaic peoples Replacemenf \/ P. aeflu'apl A. afi'icam ?
