For Lawrence Barham of the University of Liverpool, the dating of the Moroccan site helps us to see our species more clearly in time and in space.The previous oldest Homo sapiens remains ever found, in Ethiopia, were 195,000 years old."An earlier date of 300,000 years is significant from the perspective of human evolution in Africa itself, where Homo sapiens may have co-existed with at least two other species—Homo heidelbergensis and Homo naledi," Barham commented. Many scientists hypothesise that the large-brained H.heidelbergensis was the common ancestor from which H.
sapiens and our cousins the Neanderthals split around half-a-million years ago. naledi had a smaller brain and retained some ape-like features—it likely climbed trees as well as made tools.
Now the question arises: did these different African species compete?
