There are some reports wherein the first home sapiens first started to evolve in Africa. There is a big possibility that the first human was formed in Africa, and it evolved further as time went on. Take note that human beings may have evolved due to a variety of reasons.
The weather and the climate may have an effect on the appearance of the person until there are different features that are available that have been distinct in certain nationalities and races. Those who study to the evolution of human beings still have some questions, though, so it is not final yet if the first human actually came from Africa or if there were different humans that evolved in various places of the world at that time.
Due to new technology, scientists have been able to determine the first race of people came from Africa. These people were known as the San People. They were known as many others during this time as hunters and gatherers. This means that they would hunt around for bears and other animals to hunt for their meat. They would also gather berries and plants that they could find. Many hunters and gatherers were known as nomadic people because they would have to go throughout different locations in Africa to find more food.
It is believed that these people lived as far back as over 200,000 years ago. However, an artifact that dates the furthest back in time is in 44,000 BCE where a group of tools were discovered that is believed to have belonged to this group of people.
