They believe the Dali skull had a Homo sapiens-like face but with a more primitive brain case.

Study coauthor Professor Sheela Athreya, from Texas A&M, told Mail Online: 'This was surprising because we expected Dali to exhibit similarities only to other Chinese specimens, particularly the ones that came before it (Homo erectus) and after it (Homo sapiens).'But it ended up being more similar to these fossils from North Africa and the Levant, all of which are classified as early Homo sapiens.'This further points to a complex process that involved much of Eurasia in the evolution of our species, rather than a single event, single point of origin, and single process.' The 'Dali skull' (pictured), uncovered in 1978, is remarkably complete, with its face and brain case still in tact.

Professor Jean-Jacques Hublin, who led the study, said: 'We used to think that there was a cradle of mankind 200,000 years ago in east Africa, but our new data reveal that Homo sapiens spread across the entire African continent around 300,000 years ago.'Long before the out-of-Africa dispersal of Homo sapiens, there was dispersal within Africa.' The Moroccan bones, thought to be around 300,000 years old, are the earliest modern human remains ever found.

The team say the remains share many common features with modern human, or Homo sapiens, skulls found in the 1960s at the Jebel Irhoud cave in Morocco.

The researchers suggest that some modern Homo sapiens traits evolved in Eurasia.

A 260,000-year-old skull from China could rewrite the history of human evolution.

A new analysis has found the skull is remarkably similar to the earliest known fossil of our species,found 6,200 miles (10,000 km) away in Morocco in June.
