The First Stone Tool Makers were NOT Human!

Debuting at 10pm pst (Sorry for how late it is guys, things took extra too export due to issues).


The best PaleoFirdays are based on and informed on the past week’s news. This week we had some exciting news coming out of Kenya in the form of a new paper published in the Journal Science by the lead author Tom Plummer ( While Emma Finestone was involved with the find, she is not the lead author, as I mentioned mistakenly in the video). 

In this episode, we will discuss stone tools, how old they are, and who made them. Still, more importantly, we are going to talk about why the discovery is important and, at the same time, why leading stream media, such as CNN, etc., is way overblowing this new find. 

It is important, but not as much as the media is making of it, by my understanding. 

So watch, and enjoy!
