Archaeologists have found two bone fragments at the bottom of a cave in northern Laos dating back 86,000 years, long before the main migration of Homo sapiens out of Africa. These findings also show that modern humans had reached Southeast Asia when the Toba volcano erupted violently 74,000 years ago.
