Ancestry in Asia?
Fossils recently found in Myanmar could prove that the common ancestors of humans, monkeys and apes evolved from primates in Asia, rather than Africa, researchers say. The pieces of 38-million-year-old jawbones and teeth found in 2005 show typical characteristics of primates, the researchers who found the fossils pointed out. Other scientists say it's too early to draw such conclusions. The findings were published Wednesday in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, a London-based journal.
