Although the hominin fossils from the site were published years ago, until now the associated archaeological assemblages were incompletely described, often leading to conflicting interpretations.
This monograph includes a thorough technological analysis of the lithic assemblages, incorporated in their geological and sedimentological contexts.
If this interpretation of the fossil record is correct, all people today share a relatively modern African ancestry.
All other lines of humans that had descended from Homo erectus presumably became extinct.
Dating of the earliest modern human fossils in Asia is less secure, but it is likely that they were present there by at least 60,000 years ago and possibly 100,000 years ago.
