Archaeologists unearth 67,000-year-old human bone in Philippines

Archaeologists in the Philippines have unearthed a 67,000-year-old human bone in a discovery they claim proves the area was settled by man 20,000 years earlier than previously thought.

The foot bone - found during a four-year excavation project of a network of caves - predates the 47,000-year-old Tabon Man that was previously known as the first human to have lived in the Philippines.

The discovery was made at the Callao caves near Penablanca, 210 miles north of Manila.

"So far this could be the earliest human fossil found in the Asia-Pacific region," Professor Armand Mijares, of the University of the Philippines Diliman, who led the team of archeologists, told GMANews.TV.

"The presence of humans in Luzon shows these early humans already possessed knowledge of seacraft-making in this early period."

Prof Mijares said the evidence suggested that Callao Man or his ancestors reached Luzon in the Philippine archipelago by raft at a time when experts did not think humans were capable of travelling long distances by sea.

Thinking also of the same probability...

Anyway, if the date and the bone sample is authentic, then that person who owns that bone could be one of our ancestors... :D
