African Artifacts Suggest An Earlier Modern Human
By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD
More than 70,000 years ago, people occupied a cave in a high cliff
facing the Indian Ocean at the tip of South Africa. They hunted
grysbok, springbok and other game. They ate fish from the waters
below them. In body and brain size, these cave dwellers were
definitely anatomically modern humans.
Archaeologists are now finding persuasive evidence that these people
were taking another important step toward modernity. They were
turning animal bones into tools and finely worked weapon points, a
skill more advanced in concept and application than the making of the
usual stone tools. They were also engraving some artifacts with
symbolic marks - manifestations of abstract and creative thought and,
presumably, communication through articulate speech.
The new discoveries at Blombos Cave, 200 miles east of Cape Town, are
turning long-held beliefs upside down.
