Could you be speaking of the Omo River Valley in southern Ethiopia?    This
is,  I believe,  where the most complete Modern skull was uncovered some
forty years ago by Richard Leakey.    Called "Omo I",  it is estimated to be
130,000 years old,   which substantially predates fossil Moderns from the
Middle East.    This discovery significantly undermined the Candelabra
(multi-regional) hypothesis of co-extensive development.
