Who Made the Oldest Stone Tools?-PaleoFridays

Welcome to this episode of #PaleoFridays! Sorry for the late episode, but accidents do happen! 

Immobilized and feeling much better right now, thank you all for the concern and well wishes, next time I wont trip and fall! 

On this week’s episode we will be discussing the oldest known stone tool complex thus far known. For decades many believed that the Oldowan Tool Complex was the first lithics to be made, and while they are quite old, and prolific, they may not be the first. 

In 2011, a team led by Sonia Harmand and Jason Lewis from Stony Brook University, discovered what seems to be like stones altered by humanoid hands, dating back to an amazing date, far older than the Oldowan tools. 

But what could they be, and who made them?
