Thought Grendel might be interested in this one!

Here is a link to the Science Daily website article regarding the earliest modern human to be discovered in Asia, estimated to be between 46 000 and 63 000 years old!

Thanks for that, just as I leave it all happens. Same can be said of all with the parties I go to.

The date is post Toba eruption, so you never know I could have met one of his descendants.

Since we're on the topic or Lao and I never miss an opportunity to boast about my travels a couple of snaps of places I visited while there. Just to show other SE Asian countries may have their ancient cities but Lao rules the region when it come to prehistory.

The nowadays quite famous Plain of Jars.



and the quite unknown Hintang, SE Asia's only standing stones.
