just like that, a fortune in books, lectures, midnight oil, notes, certification and academic honours. Why, oh why, can’t someone come up with some definitive enduring facts~?
“…have cemented the idea that hominins (early members of the human lineage) not only originated in Africa but remained isolated there for several million years before dispersing to Europe and Asia.
