Archaeologists announced that they have discovered two human bones about 100,000 years old in Central China's Henan province.

The limb bones were unearthed in May at the Lingjing historical site in Xuchang, said Li Zhanyang, a researcher at the Henan Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology, who led the excavation.

Li said the two fossils were discovered not far from each other. Both belong to a young person, maybe even the same person, Li said.
