HOW OLD IS MAN?
EUROPE DID NOT GIVE RISE TO A SINGLE SPECIES OF MAN
Mr. Osborn's conclusions are stated tentatively that is, scientifically as strong probabilities, not certainties. They are as follows, and they represent the conclusions which are in accord with our present knowledge.
From the earliest Paleolithic to Neolithic times western Europe was never a center of human evolution. It did not give rise to a single species of man, nor did there occur therein any marked evolution or transformation of human types. The main racial evolution took place to the eastward, whence at first primitive and afterward modern types of men found their way westward.

THE CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION
The Historic Lands Along the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers Where Briton Is Fighting Turk
N THE Southwestern corner of the great continent of Asia, between the Persian Gulf and the border of that great elbow known as Asia Minor, which the continent thrusts out westward, there lies a land whose influence upon the history of the human race it would scarcely be possible to overestimate.
This is the place which is generally recognized to have been the original home of the human race, where, in dim and misty ages before history began, men first attempted to form themselves into organized communities, where the Hebrew race found its origin, and whence their first leader, Abraham, went out in search of the land which he should afterward receive for an inheritance.
which appeared in Europe, no one was ancestral to any other; they all successively arrived fully formed. Therefore the family trees or lines of descent of the races of the Old Stone Age consist of a number of entirely separate branches, which had been completely developed in the eastern mass of the great Eurasiatic continent.
The sudden appearance in Europe, some 25,000 years ago, of a human race with a high order of brain was not a local leap forward, but the result of a long process of evolution elsewhere. Throughout the whole period there was a long, slow process of checkered progress, marked by the rise and fall of races, of cultures, and of industries. It is a fascinating subject, and no one has dealt with it as ably as Mr. Osborn.

It is a long and comparatively narrow stretch of country, running up from the Persian Gulf toward the Taurus Mountains and that lofty tableland which we now know as Armenia. On its northern
