Two important hominid specimens were found in 1967 by an expedition led by Richard Leakey to a site called Kibish, in the Omo Valley in southern Ethiopia. The dates of these specimens were recently revisited and secured at 195,000 years. The Kibish skull of Omo 2 and the partial skull, mandible and associated postcranial bones of Omo 1, mark the critical earliest fossil evidence of modern Homo sapiens in Africa. This evidence, alongside the molecular and genetic evidence, confirms that our own species, Homo sapiens, evolved in Africa. It is now understood from molecular evidence that Homo sapiens first left Africa somewhere between 90,000 to 75,000 years ago in new waves of migration and dispersal.
