Archaeologists have recently found evidence, 2 million year-old human fossils, suggesting that the earliest human species was from Whushan County, Chongging, China.

“It’s an exciting discovery because it may rewrite China’s history,” said Huang.

A lower jawbone fragment and an incisor, along with some 230 stone tools, was found from a human they are naming “Wushan Man”.

This discovery pre-dates the findings of the Yuanmou Man, found in southwestern Yunnan Province, by 300,000 years.

“Various dating techniques corroborated earlier findings that the geological layer containing the Wushan Man fossils and artifacts is two to 2.04 million years old,” said Wanbo.
