Ancient Hominins Lived In China Much Earlier T…

Recently, stone tools from 2.1 million years ago in northwestern China were discovered. These tools are the oldest hominin tools found outside of Africa. And they suggest that hominins migrated out of Africa much earlier, and spread much farther east, than once thought.

The earliest hominin remains outside of Africa right now is a Homo erectus fossil found in a cave in Georgia, dating to about 1.85 million years ago. The new finds in China mean hominins were outside Africa about 250,000 years earlier, and 3,500 miles to the east. Interestingly, no hominin remains have been found in the area. Based on the tools’ age it is believed that they belonged to Homo habilis or Homo erectus.

Of course all this hinges on the tools being hominin tools. And the dating being correct. Still, if everything holds up, what a find!
