Ancient stone tools found in China shake up human ancestor timeline (again)

Thankfully, the new find isn’t quite so dramatic, but it’s no less fascinating. At a maximum age of 2.12 million years, the recently-discovered artifacts are about 270,000 years older than bones and stone tools found in Dmanisi, Georgia, which are widely accepted to be the oldest remains of hominins beyond Africa. Not only that, they’re much further from Africa than human ancestors were believed to have spread at that time.
