Romania rules! (I think)

Let the CNN enlightenth ye:
“WASHINGTON (Reuters) — The jawbone of a cave-man living in what is now Romania is the oldest fossil from an early modern human to be found in Europe, U.S. researchers said. […] The jawbone, found in southwestern Carpathian Mountains of Romania, was carbon-dated to between 34,000 and 36,000 years ago, said Erik Trinkaus of Washington University in St. Louis, who led the study. That makes it “the oldest definite early modern human specimen in Europe and provides perspectives on the emergence and evolution of early modern humans in the northwestern Old World,” Trinkaus and colleagues wrote in their report, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.”
