Large-scale analysis tools has recently been found in different parts of Africa showed that the style of their production has changed dramatically approximately 320 thousand years ago, what is the evidence of the early beginnings of humankind, as evidenced by the theory of the African “garden of Eden”, according to a paper published in the journal Science.
“What the ancient people exchanged volcanic glass and pigments, traveling long distances, suggests that more than 320 thousand years ago there was a kind of “social networking”. They brought together a group of our ancestors lived at great distances from each other, and serve as an indicator that our species emerged unusually early,” said Allison Brooks, an anthropologist from George Washington University (USA).
Until recently, anthropologists and paleontologists believed that modern man, Homo sapiens, originated in East Africa approximately 200 thousand years ago, a few hundred thousand years after the separation of the ancestors of the Neanderthals and the CRO-magnons. The first people, as was shown by the excavations penetrated to the middle East for about 70 thousand years ago and into Europe about 45 thousand years ago.
