Fishing vessel catches 40,000-year-old human bone

By John Louie S. Ramos     Jul 26, 2009 in Science
A fishing vessel searching for mussels off the Dutch coast has caught an unlikely "big fish." The fishermen were surprised to have trawled on a 40,000-year-old human bone.
German scientist confirmed the bone is authentic and that it's the oldest underwater bone ever discovered. Scientist ignored theories the man dwelt on the sea, despite the fact the bone was found underwater. They ruled out the possibility the man lived on land and ate meat during that time.
The fishermen also found caveman tools, specifically a hand-axe and a flint.
Additional details of the discovery were not yet fully disclosed and will be published in the August issue of GEO magazine.
