The first one is Homo Habilis who was the most ape-like among them. Homo erectus was their later successor. They were just

    The Debate Over the Origin of Modern Homo Sapiens There has been a great deal of heated debate for the last few decades about where modern Homo sapiens originated. From the battle grounds, two main theories emerged.

The species began to spread and replace all other archaic human-like populations around 35,000 to 89,000
