Here’s What a 55,000-Year-Old Skull Teaches Us About Human Migration
Part of a female human skull, found in a cave in Israel and believed to be around 55,000-years-old, is giving researchers clues as to when humans migrated out of Africa, leading to the eventual colonization of Europe. The partial skull, found in Manot Cave in western Galilea, is the first recorded instance of modern humans being in the Levant region during that time period, archeologists claim in the journal Nature.

Moreover, individuals perform better at reading when they are more sensitive to auditory information. “Better readers seem to have more ...
