The out of Africa theory is that the homo-sapiens evolved in Africa and then displaced all other homo. The multiregional theoyr is that homo-sapiens simultaneously evolved at different areas all around the earth. The multiregional theory argues for interbreeding rather than homo-sapiens wiping out all other species.

Who are the first humans?

Our early ancestors, Homo erectus, first appeared in Africa 1-2 million years ago. They spread throughout the world and evolved into ancient humans. Most believe that modern humans evolved in Africa, and gradually replaced all the other ancient humans (the 'Out-of-Africa' theory). However, some scientists believe that ancient humans may have evolved into modern humans all over the world at around the same time (the 'multiregional' theory). Either way, by about 30,000 years ago, we - Homo sapiens - were the only humans left on the planet.
