Document Summary

Amhs first appear between 250,000 and 150,000 years ago. The oldest amh remains we have are from africa. Everyone alive today is a member of the same species: homo sapiens sapiens. Widest point of skull is high up on the sides. We lack a retromolar gap that neandertals have. We are even losing space for our 3rd molars (wisdom teeth) Postcrania taller than neandertals and archaic homo less robust than neandertals and archaic homo cylindrical rib cage (not conical) less spatulated apical tufts (compared to neandertals) 2 imcomplete crania, 4 mandibles, and assorted other pieces. Remains of up to 10 individuals, but no complete crania. Mixed rock powders (red ochire) with animal fats for paints. No doubt these were amh; have chins, vertical foreheads, no real browridge. Amh and neandertals either co-existing in the same region or alternating use of the same sites. But just as importantly, we have amh using the exact same stone-tool technology as.
