It is likely that H. erectus first evolved from an earlier human ancestor known as Homo habilis, in East Africa. They then spread out. Fossils dating from about 1.8 million years ago until about 100000 years ago have been found in Southeast Asia, Europe, India, China and the Caucasus. H. erectus would eventually give rise to a host of other early humans such as Homo heidelbergensis, and Homo floresiensis though scientists still do not agree on whether the species is a direct human ancestor to Homo sapiens. Anthropologists disagree as well on whether all the H. erectus fossils found all over the world represent one species.
The first identified species as Homo heidelbergensis was a jaw discovered near Heidelberg, Germany in 1907. Other finds have been made in Africa, Europe, and Asia since then. They show a less projecting face, bigger braincase, and more prominent nose than H. Erectus. H. heidelbergensis is known to have lived from at least 600,000 years ago in Africa and Europe to may be as late as 250,000 years ago (Fagan and Nadia 145).
The Neanderthal was a species of genius Homo that inhabited Europe and parts of western Asia from about 230,000 to 29,000 years ago. The first fossils of Neanderthal were found in 1856 in a limestone quarry near Dusseldorf in the Neanderthal, Germany. It is generally beleived that both Neanderthal and Homo sapiens evolved from the archaic Homo sapiens, but the classification of Neanderthal is based on when in the timeline. The humans are considered a separate species from archaic forms (Fagan and Nadia 135).
The Mesolithic or middle Stone Age is an archaeological term that is used to describe specific groups of cultures defined as falling between the Paleolithic and the Neolithic periods. The Paleolithic was an age of solely hunting and gathering, but towards the Mesolithic period, the development of agriculture contributed to the rise of permanent settlements. The use of small

The photograph had been clicked at the beach and thus displays a great amount of vigour and vibrancy through the sights all around the four of us as well.

It is composed of evaluation, decisions, and implementation an organization carries out so as to build and maintain competitive advantages (Hunger & Wheelen, 2000).

Some of the instruments that will be used in Neptune’s moon Triton exploration may be basically the same as the instruments used in the previous explorations of the planet. On the other hand, there needs to innovate more of these instruments in order to adapt to the extremely low atmospheric temperature of the moon.
