Archaeologists from the University of Tübingen in Germany have found eight extremely well-preserved spears – an astonishing 300,000 years old, making them the oldest known weapons anywhere.
The spears and other artefacts as well as animal remains found at the site demonstrate that their users were highly skilled craftsmen and hunters, well adapted to their environment – with a capacity for abstract thought and complex planning comparable to our own. It is likely that they were members of the species Homo heidelbergensis, although no human remains have yet been found at the site.
