Homo Sapiens
Thermo luminescence dating is a technique that has several applications in Prehistory. Dating is made from minerals found on archaeological sites, which were heated at the time such as flints or potteries for more recent remains. Thermo luminescence has been used here to date to 92,000 years old this skeleton of a "Homo Sapiens" woman and her child, found in the Qafzeh cave in Israel. This dating has shown that Homo Sapiens could descend from Neanderthals.
