Dr. Thorne was the first scientist and archeologist who gave us the concept of regional continuity.
According to Thorne, Homo sapiens or (oldest man)was the first specie of land who left the Africa and the best evidences to support his theory were the Mungo Man and Mungo Lady who are supposed to be oldest humans, found in Australia.
The later investigations reported that the DNA sequence was Mungo Man was very different from fossils of humans or even present humans.
Further evidences that supported Thorn's claims was the skull of Mungo man that was very different from the skull (cranium part) of human
Hope it help!

Mungo Lady and Mungo Man are the oldest humans ever found in Australia.
The DNA sequence of Mungo Man is unlike any other human, living or fossil.
The Mungo Man was discovered by ANU archaeologist Dr. Jim Bowler on ... This made Mungo Lady the oldest cremated human remains yet discovered.Thorne claims that the findings support his theoretical point of view.Evidence - Mungo Man's skull.Two years ago Thorne made world headlines with a study of Mungo Man's DNA that he had found.
