Investigations on stone tools in India show that human beings may have been scattered from the African continent to the earth much earlier than they thought.
Indian and French scientists in India’s Tamil Nadu state archaeological excavation in the region of over 7 thousand 200 thousand 172 thousand to 385 thousand years ago may be thought. Recent discoveries made by experts may require rewriting of human history.
It is estimated that the first people, Homo Sapiens, were spread all over the world from the African continent 300 thousand years ago, and there are differences of opinion about when and how migration is made.
Although the jawbone found in Israel strengthened the thesis that the exit from Africa dates back 180,000 years, the study published in Nature revealed that migration might have started much earlier. Archeology experts have found that stone tools should be out of hands with the ability to think and is much more useful than tools dating back to 400 thousand years ago.
The ancestors of the modern man, called ‘Hominin’, were able to do heavy stone tools 1 million 750 thousand years ago. Spearheads of the first human generation in Africa and Europe were found about 300 to 400 thousand years ago. Researchers say that the first people estimated to reach India about 125,000 years ago have been living in India when immigration started from Africa.
In the article in Nature magazine, starting from the point that the migration started much earlier or that local influences might have played a role in the development of India in the Middle Palaeolithic period, it is stated that since ancient people do not have human fossils in India, old stone tools can be made by human-like species.
