This paper surveys the opinions expressed in the recent literature on the origins of the anatomically modern Homo sapiens, and reviews the evidence from cranial and dental morphology argued by proponents of opposing views to support their case. It also critically analyses problems facing the interpretation of the evidence in arriving at a definitive conclusion to the debate.
Keywords: cranial morphology, dental morphology, Eve theory, Homo sapiens, human evolution, modern Homo sapiens, multiregional continuity, Out-of-Africa theory
