A team of American paleontologists has found a set of carved stones at the site called Lomekwi 3 that are at least 3.3 million years old.
“These tools were left by early humans at the edge of a fountain and quickly buried by water. For that reason, this place has remained like this for millions of years.”
Explained the archaeologist Vera Aldeias, from the University of Algarve, in Portugal.
This discovery will rewrite the history of archaeology, since it is hundreds of thousands of years before the appearance of the first humans, according to official Science.
“The authors of these tools could have used them to open nuts or tubers, breaking them or carving the trunks of fallen trees to remove the same insects, among other things.”Research leader Sonia Harmand, from Stony Brook University, explained to Discovery.
The team claimed that the tools were clearly ‘knapped’, a term used to describe stones that have been intentionally modified to achieve a desired effect.
For example, an analysis of the tools showed that some had clearly been turned over during the chipping process.
Now, the million dollar question is: how long will official Science continue to deny that other civilizations existed before ours.
