Scientists say they've found the earliest known evidence of a human presence outside Africa.
 
Stone tools discovered in China suggest primitive humans - or a close relative - were in the region as early as 2.12 million years ago.
 
They are about 270,000 years older than the previous earliest evidence, which consists of bones and tools from Dmanisi in Georgia.
 
The research, by a Chinese-British team, appears in the journal Nature.
 
The stone artefacts were discovered at Shangchen on a plateau in northern China.

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

 

Stephen Hawking
