Graecopithecus Freybergi

Science Daily: 7.2-million-year-old pre-human remains found in the Balkans - New hypothesis about the origin of humankind suggests oldest hominin lived in Europe
summary - Scientists analyzing 7.2 million-year-old fossils uncovered in modern-day Greece and Bulgaria suggest a new hypothesis about the origins of humankind, placing it in the Eastern Mediterranean and not -- as customarily assumed -- in Africa, and earlier than currently accepted. The researchers conclude that Graecopithecus freybergi represents the first pre-humans to exist following the split from the last chimpanzee-human common ancestor.
