Exciting discovery in Turkey

While Nicolas Sarkozy spends his nights with nightmares about having one day to explain the children of France that Europe is neighbor to Iraq and Syria, the scientists at the Ankara University and University of Texas have found the first Homo Erectus, an early ancestor of human species -Homo sapiens sapiens-, skull in Anatolia, strengthening the hypothesis that human species migrated from Africa to Europe through Anatolia. The skull is also remarkable, as it shows signs of Tuberculosis, which is a disease thought to have infected mankind a few thousands year old. This skull is remarkable 500 000 years old. Yes that is 500 millenniums...

Here are Turkish and English reports on the findings.
