However these humans seem to have either gone extinct or retreated back to Africa 70,000 to 80,000 years ago, possibly replaced by south bound Neanderthals escaping the colder regions of ice age Europe. Hua Liu & al. analyzing autosomal microsatellite markers dates to c. 56,000±5,700 years ago evidence. The fossil of early modern human from dated at 80,000–100,000 Liu interpret as isolated early offshoot that retracted back to Africa.
