'one woman, read 'Eve.' It would be easy to read too much into
this; in particular, we could attach too much importance to the
personification of Eve herself. In Africa 200,000 years ago, she
was not the only woman, but one among many, each with her own complement
of mitochrondrial DNA. Eve could not have known that chance would
make her, alone, the sole ancestor of modern humanity. Her sister,
friends, and cousins could have been as fecund as she was, perhaps
more, except that their particular lineages died out.". H.

a point, the head is small, and the face is oval, without details,
the arms rest on the excessively pendulous breasts." L.
