The very first person appeared on Earth about 2, 6 million years ago and is called "Skilled Man - Homo Habilis". It is believed that he occurred from an earlier type of an Australiptec with evolutionary processes. And if Australopitets were, in fact, moving on two legs of monkeys, then Homo Habilis had a body structure, more similar to the body of a modern man, and also possessed intelligence. It is a person skilled person is considered the progenitor of the modern human race.
For the first time, the remains of the representative of the person skillful were discovered in 1960 in the Gorge of Olday, Tanzania. The whole scientific world was excited by a sensational find of the skeleton of a new type of hominid. The search for such bones began to be held around the world, and soon scientists gathered a sufficient number of copies, to be able to describe in detail the features of the person skillful, which gave reason to assume that it was during the existence of this species that had a turning point in the evolution of human-like creatures. The eyes immediately rushed: not separated separately, and pressed to another extreme finger of the foot, like the modern structure of the human foot; Wider, like Homo Sapience (intelligent man - modern view) hip bone, allowing to give birth to children with a large volume of the brain; Larger and rounded skull. In addition, next to the remains of a person skillfully found traces of a primitive tool of labor, which, apparently, they used during their lives. Of all this, we can conclude that the person skilled is the most ancient man on earth, and the time of his appearance is about 2, 6 million years ago.
But Homo Habilis refers to human race only in scientific research and archaeological time charts. The modern representative of the human kind could hardly be called low (1.2 meters in height), hairy and barely pronounced unintelligent sounds of the Gominid Gordy word "man."
Modern person - Homo Sapience - appeared on Earth about 130, 000 years BC due to the evolution of another species - a man of spinning. Currently, the oldest remains of Homo Sapience found are about 140, 000 years old, ± 20, 000 years and found in the Border Cave, South Africa.
