The himans existed for millions of years ago and per research study done by Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA)  hominins, distant human ancestors, moved to Europe from Africa secondary to  warming climate 1.4 million years ago.
It is based on the analysis of the Barranco León site in the Guadix-Baza Basin in southeast Spain, where stone tools were linked to the earliest known hominins.
Pleistocene era (the era lasted from 2.59 million to 11,700 years ago) was characterised by colder and drier weather. "This possibly impeded the settlement of this region by the early hominin population from the southern Caucasus,"per study.
The study was led by Jordi Agusti from ICREA and its findings were published in the Journal of Human Evolution.
