With the article:

This new evidence points to a much more advanced level of human development and adaptation in Africa during the Middle Palaeolithic.

Doesn't surprise me really from the findings of so much in the past of great civilizations that are no more. I do thing mankind is it's worse enemy and keeps loosing ground with it's arrogance.

But how could that be the earth is only 6000 years old. (Just kidding) . I guess they made settlements earlier than thought. They probably did a lot of other stuff earlier than we though too.
