Grimaldi Man were the first Early Modern Humans in Africa who migrated to Europe and the rest of the world after the evolution of Modern Man on the African Plains according to the Out Of Africa Theory.
From The African Plains To Colonising Europe
According to Dr. Stephen Oppenheimer, a geneticist at Oxford College, its clear that based on DNA evidence, modern Europeans all originate from Grimaldi Man who was the first Early Modern Human in Africa before Humans spread across the world.
Evidence of Grimaldi Man’s life during the Stone Age on the African Plains has been found in Archaeological remains such as Bone Fragments, Stone Tools and Rock Art.
Grimaldi Man’s life was a life of Hunting and Gathering in which Stone Tools were forged and used.
In Africa, Grimaldi Man had already developed Artistic expression as evident in the Rock Paintings which also served a kind of Historical Record of the life and culture of the life of early Grimaldi Man on the African Plains.
However, between 70,000 and 100,000 years ago, the first Early Modern Humans in Africa began moving from the African continent into Europe and Asia, and eventually, Grimaldi Man would reach as far as Australia.
About 10 000-12 000 years ago during the Pleistocene Ice Age, a land bridge also connected Asia and North America (Alaska), and its widely accepted that Grimaldi Khoisan Man crossed this land bridge from Asia into North and then South America.
At some point about 45,000 B.C, the Glacial Ice Sheets that covered most of Europe, began to melt and groups of Grimaldi Khoisan African peoples crossed into Europe via the Gibraltar Straits where they reached as far as Siberia.
When the first Early Modern Humans in Africa entered Europe, they encountered Neanderthal man who had migrated to Europe thousands of years earlier, and had become physically adapted to the cold, and it is generally believed that there was some crossbreeding between them.
Grimaldi Man is recognised for developing a significant culture in Europe known as Paleolithic Cave Art which spread across Europe, from the Urals to the Iberian Peninusula, from 35,000 to 11,000 BC.
The story of mankind begins on the African Plains with the Grimaldi Man who was the first Early Modern Human in Africa before migrating from Africa to Europe, then onto the rest of the world as far as Mongolia.
Today, Grimaldi Men similar to the first Early Modern Humans in Africa can still be seen in the San of the Kalahari Desert whose Stone Age way of life has been largely preserved.
