ANSWER Modern man is Homo sapiens, sometimes referred to as Homo sapiens sapiens, to distinguish us from archaic Homo sapiens or possible subspecies of Homo sapiens, including Neanderthal man. Some African fossils that may be archaic Homo sapiens, are sometimes referred to as Homo sapiens rhodesiensis. Various speciments have been dated to between 200,000 and 400,000 years ago. The earliest modern Homo sapiens fossils have been dated to around 200,000 years ago. This has been confirmed by two separate DNA methods, using 'non-recombining' sections of the genome. they actually lived about 100,000 years to 35,000 ago
