Archaeologists discover world’s oldest wooden structure dated back 476,000 Years Ago

Researchers from the University of Liverpool and Aberystwyth University have found evidence suggesting that humans were constructing wooden structures as far back as 476,000 years ago, much earlier than previously believed. The discovery was made at Kalambo Falls in Zambia where well-preserved wooden artifacts were found, predating the evolution of Homo sapiens. Stone tool cut-marks on the wood indicate that these early humans crafted logs for building, potentially platforms or parts of dwellings. This challenges the idea that Stone Age humans were strictly nomadic. The site’s age was determined using new luminescence dating techniques by Aberystwyth University. This significant archaeological site near Lake Tanganyika is being considered for a UNESCO World Heritage status. The findings are a part of the ‘Deep Roots of Humanity’ project, which explores human technological advancement during the Stone Age.
