 Using rhinolithic to cut rhinoceros? Philippines appeared 640 thousand years ahead of ancient humans.


Researchers have recently excavated 57 stone tools and more than 400 giant lizards, brown deer, freshwater turtles and saber tooth images in the northern part of the northern Luzon Island, with the aid of electron spin resonance to determine the age of the early Pleistocene, 709 thousand years ago. Agence France-Presse reported that the stone tools found were percussion or chiseling tools, including 49 kinds of knife blades and two hammers. The largest discovery of the archeology was a rhinoceros skeleton with a complete degree of about 75%, with 13 incisions and knocking marks, showing that the rhinoceros had been dismembered and fed by ancient humans. It is not clear whether the ancient humans hunted the rhinoceros or only found its body. Thomas Ingico, the first author of the study and vice professor of the National Museum of natural history, told CNN that the early Pleistocene relics were found on the Philippines islands far away from the mainland, indicating that those ancient humans were unlikely to be Homo sapiens. The Homo sapiens are the ancestors of modern human beings. According to JIC, the researchers knew little about the ancient human behavior in Southeast Asia during this period. The ancient human bones, previously discovered in the Luzon Island, show a small size, similar to the hobbits found in Indonesia, or the Flores. The evolution of the ancient human body gradually diminishing and the formation of new species may also be staged in Lv Songdao, according to JIC. However, people found the ancient human foot bone in the QAI area, and did not find the tools, and the new discovery in the area of the qanha area has a huge gap in time, leaving a lot of questions. The latest finding raises the question of whether the ancient humans in the city are clever enough to make navigational tools and to drift from the mainland to Luzon Island. Ingico believes that the possibility of ancient humans making rafting rafts can not be ruled out at the moment. Another possibility is that extreme weather such as typhoons provide natural rafting rafts such as mangroves to help them cross the sea. (Ocean) (Xinhua News Agency)
