Perhaps if you consider the entire sentence it would clarify the time periods for you.

In 2007 human remains were found that date back one and a half million years, considered the oldest Europeans remains ever found.

"Lucy" and other pre-human fossils have been found in Africa.

The following is an excerpt (page 310) from Jones' book ...

The last chapter of The Origin of Species is an abstract of the book's "long argument" in simple, even urgent, terms. It returns with almost poetic intensity to the woodpeckers, wasps, and oaks that make Darwin's case, and contains its most famous sentence: "Light will be thrown on the origin of man and his history."
