Archaeologists have discovered tools that predate the bones of Peking Man, some of the earliest known human fossils in China.

“Archaeologists working in Mount Modao have uncovered more than 350 artifacts, which they believe date to the early phase of the Stone Age.” (Scmp.com)

All the finds are stone tools, mostly axes and pickaxes. ‘Peking Man’ is believed to be 750,000 years old. The Stone Age is considered to date back 3.4 million years. So, if the science is right, whoever would have used these stone tools could predate Peking Man by a lot. They may even be older than the earliest fossils thus discovered in Africa, dating back 3.2 million years. That would challenge the assumption that man came from Africa.

And, as for me, I’ve always known that Chinese are the original humans. There’s a reason why they have all the best sayings.
