Short Chronology Model

Model for the human occupation of Europe proposed by Dutch prehistorians W. Roebroeks and T. van Kolfschoten in 1994, which posits that hominids did nor inhabit Europe prior to 500 kya. This discovery of human species at Gran Dolina and Ceprano that date to older than 500 kya, however, falsified this model and resulted in an alternative form called the two-phase model.
