African Bone Tools Dispute Key Idea About Human Evolution

National Geographic News

This site from National Geographic details a study that argues, based on the bone tools and other recent discoveries, that "behavioral modernity" first evolved in Africa and has a much longer history than most archaeologists believe. The study uses bone tools more than 70,000 years old as evidence that modern behavior evolved before humans migrated to Europe.
