Archaeologists in the nation of Georgia last week discovered a tooth belonging to an ancient human species believed to around 1.8 million years old.
The molar was found by a research student at the Orozmani dig site, dated between 1.77 and 1.84 million years old, in the Caucasus region.
It’s one of the earliest signs of hominins outside of Africa. He showed the tooth to the team from the Georgian National Museum leading the dig. Then we established contact with our paleontologist and he confirmed it was a hominin tooth, Giorgi Kopaliani, an Archeologist with the Georgian National Museum, told the Press.
