The “out of Africa theory” places the “African Eve” at 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand tell us about the DNA analysis of a Neanderthal skeleton lending support to the “out of Africa theory.” In 1997, scientists in London reported their findings of the DNA analysis of a Neanderthal skeleton, giving credence to the long formed hypothesis of human evolution and placing an “African Eve” at 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.
Plus, Boris Yeltsin takes office as President of Russia in 1991, Manuel Noriega is sentenced to 40 years in prison in 1992, and Jake LaMotta (boxer) is welcomed into the world in 1921.
