1.8 Million Year Old Human Skull Found

PureInsight | March 3, 2003

[OureInsight.org] Scientists recently found the almost perfectly preserved skull of the most ancient human being ever found in Europe, about 1.8 million years old.

According to BBC News, the skull was discovered at the medieval town of Dmanisi, 80 kilometers (50 miles) south-west of the Georgian capital, Tbilisi.

The discovery has thrown into question all accepted theories about the migration of our ancestors out of Africa. The discovery has opened so many questions about our ancestry that one scientist quipped: "They ought to put it back into the ground."

This is yet another piece of evidence supporting the possibility of the existence of prehistoric civilizations.
