The evolution of Homo sapiens commenced approximately 200 000 - 300 000
years ago. The Homo sapiens structure is similar to that of the Homo erectus,
yet Homo sapiens skulls were slightly rounder and larger. Their teeth and
jaws were noticeably smaller, which corresponds with, they're fragile face.
The Homo sapiens brain capacity averaged an impressive 1 350 cc, surprisingly
the same size of todays humans. (Wicander and Monroe 1993)
