Kulturmänniskan 44.000 år gammal
« skrivet: augusti 02, 2012, 21:42 »
Samtidigt med den avancerade jakt- och fiskekulturen i norra Eurasien och dom första konstvärken i central-Europa fanns väletablerade kulturmänniskor också i södra Arika, för drygt 40.000 år sen.


A key question in human evolution is when in prehistory human cultures similar to ours emerged? Until now, most archaeologists believed that the oldest traces of San hunter-gatherer culture in southern Africa dates back 10,000, or at most 20,000 years.

The international team of researchers, led by Francesco d’Errico, Director of Research at the French National Research Centre, dated and directly analysed objects from archaeological layers at Border Cave.

Located in the foothills of the Lebombo Mountains in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the site has yielded exceptionally well-preserved organic material.

Backwell says their results have shown without a doubt that at around 44,000 years ago the people at Border Cave were using digging sticks weighted with perforated stones, like those traditionally used by the San.
