Jives with increasing numbers of fossils that seem to show earlier waves of departure from Africa than the one that populated the globe. Still unclear whether these were failed efforts, or whether their descendants were still around to mix with the later human waves of exodus.

Also, as early H sapiens has been redated to a little over 300,000 years ago, these new finds are in accord with that. Which would have been more confusing 10 years ago when we were still working with a ~200,000 year estimate.
