The lower jawbone was discovered by potholers in Pestera cu Oase, the "cave with bones", located in the southwestern Carpathian Mountains of Romania in 2002.
The fact is that European scientists had evidence, and knew from earlier that the 19th century, of the Black mans central role in settling and establishing civilization in Europe and everywhere else.
In this case the Romanian bones are not even close to being the oldest found in Europe.
That honor goes to the Skeletons that were found in the caverns of Grimaldi (Baousse-Rousse), between Mentone and Ventimiglia and on the Italian side of the international boundary. It can be claimed that these were not truly modern Humans, but rather, a link in the chain to White people as Modern Humans: The Humanoid "Cro-Magnon" is often used to make this bogus case.
Quote: This clay sculpture portrays the face of the earliest known modern European - a man or woman who hunted deer and gathered fruit and herbs in ancient forests more than 35,000 years ago.
It was created by Richard Neave; one of Britain's leading forensic scientists, using fossilized fragments of skull and jawbone found in a cave seven years ago.
These caverns form one of the most compact groups of Paleolithic caverns in all Europe - these skeletons are "COMPLETE" and date to 43,000 B.

(Some Whites still cling to the myth that they evolved in Europe, and some White writers and media are intent on perpetuating this ignorance).
