Accidental Rafting and Homo Erectus in
south East Asia
Accidental Rafting: By chance being swept away to a different area during a
natural disaster (hurricane, tsunamis, etc.) and surviving could even cross
seas, especially if the currents are strong enough to push you onto the coast
of another place
However, there are almost no good evidence that people in Australia
from 40 thousand to 4 thousand years ago have had any contact with
people from different areas (such as in Asia or Java).
If there were boats involved, there would have been at least some
contact between the people in Australia and places across the Wallace
Line
What Happened to Homo erectus in South-East Asia?
There is no evidence that Homo erectus in Asia has evolved into
modern humans
The Homo erectus in Asia disappeared completely. Some reasons for
this may be:

Description
Accidental Rafting and Homo Erectus in south East Asia Accidental Rafting: By chance being swept away to a different area during a natural disaster (hurricane, tsunamis, etc.) and surviving – could even cross seas, especially if the currents are strong enough to push you onto the coast of another place  However, there are almost no good evidence that people in Australia from 40 thousand to 4 thousand years ago have had any contact with people from different areas (such as in Asia or Java).  If there were boats involved, there would have been at least some contact between the people in Australia and places across the Wallace Line What Happened to Homo erectus in South-East Asia?  There is no evidence that Homo erectus in Asia has evolved into modern humans  The Homo erectus in Asia disappeared completely. Some reasons for this may be:  There is a super volcano called Toba; it was 2,400 times the size of Mount St. Helens eruption in 1980 – it spread debris to approximately 2,800 cubic kilometres  If the Homo erectus had been around during this time, the eruption of Toba could have been a plausible reason for the extinction of the Homo erectus and the plantations in the area What is the Homo floresiensis?  Found in the Liang Bua Cave in Flores  There are no complete skeletons, but there are remains of at least 6-7 individuals  The layers of the site date from about 19,000 to 9,000 years ago  The Homo floresiensis were around when modern humans were around as well  They were much smaller than modern humans – around a metre tal
