The timeline of human evolution outlines the major events in the evolutionary lineage of the modern human species, Homo sapiens, throughout the history of life, beginning some 4 billion years ago down to recent evolution within H. sapiens during and since the Last Glacial Period.. It includes brief explanations of the various taxonomic ranks in the human lineage.

This timeline of human prehistory comprises the time from the first appearance of Homo sapiens in Africa 300,000 years ago to the invention of writing and the beginning of history, 5,000 years ago. It thus covers the time from the Middle Paleolithic (Old Stone Age) to the very beginnings of world history.
One noticeable difference in comparison between Cro-mangon and the other early species of man, is the culture and artwork they left behind. They are said to have been very artistic. They made artwork from beads, sculptures, and many other types of art. This cultural side to them makes them seem to be even more like modern humans of today.
Since about 4 million years ago, humans have evolved from early hominids to modern humans. Here are 14 species examples from human evolution now extinct. Apes remained in trees for their primary food source. Eventually, grass began to spread in places like the African Savannah.
The timeline of human history begins between 160,000 and 195,000 years ago with early modern humans, beginning with early periods, such as the Mesolithic and Neolithic. Later on, there were various technological advancements that occurred throughout human civilization.

Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct primates. The only extant members of the human tribe, Hominini, belong to the species Homo sapiens. The exact nature of the evolutionary relationships between modern humans and their ancestors remains the subject of debate.
