Submission + - Man hunted with spears 200k years earlier than expected (

AoOs writes: "Findings published in Science indicate that man started hunting with spears 500,000 years ago. 200,000 years earlier than previously thought. This early use indicated that the early human species and Neanderthals used spears for hunting. "Although both Neanderthals and humans used stone-tipped spears, this is the first evidence that the technology originated prior to or near the divergence of these two species." says Jayne Wilkins, a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Toronto in Canada."
