Recent reevaluations of the absolute chronology of human ancestry in East Asia, particularly China and Indonesia, yield the not unexpected conclusion that eastern Eurasian Homo erectus may be synchronic with the earliest members of that hypodigm known from Africa.

In the past decade, both archaeological and paleontological evidence has come to light in China suggesting the presence of human ancestors prior to the Matuyama [R] chron-Brunhes [N] chron boundary of ca. 730,000 BP. Preliminary chronometric data derived from several localities indicate ages in excess of one million years.
