Ancient skull found in Europe:
Archaeologists have found what they believe to be one of the oldest human skulls ever discovered in Europe. The skull was unearthed in Georgia and is thought to be at least 1.8 million years old. The latest find supports the idea that humans left Africa 5,00,000 years earlier. Experts are now hopeful that the well-preserved skull will help them find out more about the developments of our ancestors. Five bones in total have been discovered including a jawbone unearthed 14 years ago. Ancient fossils of hominids have been found in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, but it’s unusual to find them in Europe.
