Discovery of ancient stone tools in Kenya dating back 3.3 million years challenges story of mankind

Recommended Posts

Anthropologists say the discovery of stone tools found in north-west Kenya dating back 3.3 million years challenges the mainstream story of mankind.


Found in desert badlands near Lake Turkana, the tools include sharp-edged flakes that could have been used for cutting meat from animal carcasses and rudimentary hammers perhaps used to pound open nuts or tubers.


They are 700,000 years older than any other such stone tools ever found.
