Prehistoric Tuna Fishing

December 6, 2011

I liked this:

On the island of East Timor in southeast Asia, remains of tuna and other types of fish were discovered inside a cave by a team of archaeologists led by Sue O’Connor of Australian National University. After using dating techniques to determine the age of the remains, they found them to be 42,000 years old. This makes these remains the earliest evidence of ocean fishing by humans.

Catching fish requires proper tools and knowledge about the sea, indicating that humans must have been more advanced than previously thought.
