All living humans belong to the same species, Homo sapiens. The oldest fossil record of H. sapiens is found in Africa, and it is dated to 150,000 to 200,000 years ago. Using DNA, scientists dated Mitochondrial Eve at a slightly older age of 250,000. Therefore the best estimate is that we evolved as a species in Africa about 150,000 to 200,000 years ago. Our ancestor, H. erectus, first evolved 1.8 million years ago. H. erectus invented fire and bulit boats or rafts, and it is also the first species of hominids that migrated out of Africa. The H. erectus population in Europe later evolved into Neanderthals, while those in Asia may have given rise to the Hobbit, a species of dwarf humans with the scientific name of Homo floresiensis.

The earliest fossils of anatomically modern humans are from the Middle Paleolithic, about 200,000 years ago, such as the Omo remains of Ethiopia.
