    I heard about this fossil finding a couple of years back. Chad is a compley place within Africa, it seems to be the place where East Africa meets west Africa. The fossil isn't homo sapiens sapiens and the earliest homo sapiens sapiens thus far have been found in Ethiopia in the Omo Valley and they date back to 200,000 years ago.
