It ties in with the chinese updating, actually predating, HE pekinensis's age by 200,000 years to 700 Kya (could also be one-upmanship).

If HE was in Dmanisi, Georgia by 1,77 Mya, and in Malaysia by 1,83 Mya, and Meganthropus paleojavanicus, an HE variant, had already reached Java by 1,57 Mya, and another HE variant had reached China by 1,6 Mya, then it must certainly have been possible for HE to have reached western Europe by the same time. No surprises there. All the pieces of the puzzle seem to fit ever neater and tidier.
