The World's Oldest Archaeological Sites

By September 28, 2007

Follow me on:

The oldest archaeological sites in the world discovered to date, in the strictest sense of the word 'archaeology', are small stone tool working and butchering sites which are 2.5-2.7 million years old and were made by either Australopithecus or maybe an early hominin, perhaps H. habilis. The sites are named Gona (or Kada Gona) and Bouri in Ethiopia, and (a little later) Lokalalei in Kenya.

So, what's the evidence? Pick a link and follow it for more information:
