Approximately 98,000 BC - 88,000 BC: Around 98,000 BC fully modern humans are emerging now for the first time worldwide; Sometime over the next 10,000 years they take up residence in the Middle East and Africa

Strictly modern humans are only just now appearing or emerging on Earth. But that I mean people physically and mentally indistinguishable from people who will live in the 20th century AD. Sure, they don't enjoy a developed civilization and related technologies on par with the 20th-- but a time traveler could kidnap a newborn in 98,000 BC, delivering it to adoptive parents in the 20th, and it would look, grow, and develop exactly like any newborn from the 20th century might be expected to-- except perhaps for a few extra vulnerabilities to infectious diseases which have newly evolved since 98,000 BC.
