GENETIC researchers have unveiled evidence suggesting that the human populations of Eurasia and east Asia diverged between 45,000 and 36,200 years ago.
Researchers analysed genetic samples from the shin bone of a man who died 36,200 years ago near Kostenki-Borshchevo in Russia.
They found that the man shared genetic sequences with modern Europeans that differ from those of modern east Asians.
University of Copenhagen evolutionary biologist Eske Willerslev compared the finding to that in a separate study of a Siberian from 45,000 years ago, which found gene sequences ancestral to both east Asians and Europeans.
The finding contradicts previous theories that modern Europeans descended from Europe-based hunter-gatherers and people who had developed farming before moving in from the Middle East after the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.
