Bräuer, Günter

Physical anthropologist at the Institut fur Humanbiologie, University of Hamburg; analysed sites containing African archaic Homo and early AMHs, and in 1982 was the first to propose a nonEurocentric model of human origins, an out of Africa hypothesis. Bräuer’s version was later termed the hybridization and replacement model to distinguish it from the out of Africa II model proper. Recipient of the prestigious Rudolf Martin Prize. Co-editor (with F. H. Smith) of Continuity or Replacement: Controversies in Homo sapiens Evolution (1992).
