Paleontologists found stone tools which precede early Homo Habilis. These tools were discovered in Kenya at an archaeological site of Lomekwi 3. This discovery could change the course of history since it is unknown who made them. But, on the other hand, in accordance with conventional archeology it is unlikely possible. Tools resemble those of hammers, anvils and carved stones and could have been quite useful at that time.
This discovery serves to explain other unknown aspects of hominin behavior and cognitive development and tell us that another humanlike kind existed as a tool maker before homo habilis – the first known tool makers.
Tools related with Home were found in the Ethiopian deposits and had been dated at 2.6 million years. Until recently, it was thought that those were the oldest tools since they were found next to the fossil remains of the homo habilis. The archeological term for the earliest stone tool is Oldowan. They were used in Africa, South Asia, the Middle East and Europe during the Lower Paleolithic period.
This discovery leaves anthropologist puzzled due to the unknown origin of their ownership. It was believed that Homo Genus was the first to develop tools similar to these. Yet, this discovery does not correspond with the knowledge of conventional archaeology.
