'Rolland N, 1997: Early Hominid Expansion into Eurasia: Biogeographical and Ecological Issues. Anthropologie (Brno) 35, 2: 101-107'.
 
Abstract
Early Pleistocene hominid expansion beyond Subsaharan Africa is discussed with reference to varying and habitat conditions, environmental change, natural obstacles, and probable dispersal routes throughout Eurasia, and to concepts from historical zoogeography. The oldest securely identified and dated anthropic evidence points to a 1.4 my datum, coincidig with Homo erectus and a mode 2 (Acheulian, Non-Acheulian) repertoire. Hominids followd natural dispersal routes along the substropical and tropical zones of Asia, then into the Far East and Central Asia, adapting to conditions characteristic of these regions. They may have colonized Europe directly out of Africa by crossing the Gibraltar Strait.
