In China have unearthed the tools of the age of 2 million years
Chinese scientists in China have found confirmation that in Asia, a reasonable man got about 2.1 million years ago, British scientists also confirmed this hypothesis and found in the vast expanses of China the same ancient
tools. Perhaps somewhere outside of China in Africa there is a more ancient
man`s camp than was discovered in China, the new discovery should motivate the scientific world in search of new, more ancient
sites. Scientists have found a lot of interesting things, it is the tools of life (scrapers, knives), and hunting tools of treated quartz and quartzite. All guns in the past have been used, have the appropriate workers serrated. Next to quartz in nature, it is apparently found in the region of the ridge of Qinling, it was found from the Parking lot approximately 10 km from the site of ancient
sites has found many bones of ancient
animals. The remains are approximately 2.12 million years old.
The artifacts were found on the plateau in the middle reaches of the yellow river. The soil is mainly composed of yellowish sedimentary rocks. The soil on the plateau is fertile and this is where the formation of the Chinese nation began. A total of 11 horizons were opened layer by layer, all of them formed in a warm and rainy region. Found as the soil where the remains of the past were stored in several different conditions. In General, scientists believe that all the layers opened at least cover the period of history more than 1 million years ago.
At the same time, another team of scientists, which was equipped in the Academy of Sciences found in a place called Shancheng many unique stone tools, which also date back to a period of 1.2 million years. More information about the findings in this area can be found on the website of the University of Exeter (UK), as scientists from England also participated in some excavations. In this wooded area with sedimentary soils excavations began in 2004. Scientists have etched on the solid earth to a depth of 74 meters. The work was carried out huge, 88 stone tools and some preparations for them were found. The tips of the spears were made of quartz and quartzite, they had quite sharp edges. The age of the guns is 1.5 million years on average. In addition, while breaking into the ground, found a lot of bones of ancient
This finding is known for the fact that in this case found the most ancient
tools of human labor outside the African continent. Slightly less ancient
are considered to be finds made in Georgia, in the cave of Dmanisi found scrapers that date back to a period of 1.77-1.85 million years.
