Scientific evidence says that the first modern humans, Homo sapiens, appeared more than 200,000 years ago. Some fossils from the middle Pleistocene period (about 400,000 years ago), referred to as Homo sapiens rhodesiensis, may be archaic Homo sapiens - a transitional species. The earliest known fossil of a human ancestor, a female Ardipithecus ramidusspecimen nicknamed "Ardi," is 3.2 million years old.
