This 2005 photo provided by the journal Science shows a 1.8 million-year-old pre-human skull found in the ground at the medieval village Dmanisi, Georgia. It's the most complete ancient hominid skull found to date, and it is the earliest evidence of human ancestors moving out of Africa and spreading north to the rest of the world, according to a study published Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, in the journal Science. Next to it is a large rodent tooth for comparison. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Georgia National Museum)
