Fark (with a suitably giggly headline) linked up news of a remarkable hominid fossil find:
Archaelogists say they have found a 1.8 million-year-old Homo erectus skull in Georgia, the oldest such skull to be found in Europe. According to David Lortkipanidze, director of the Georgian National Museum, the skull was found August 6 and excavated on August 21 in Dmanisi, about 85 km southwest of Tblisi.
According to the article, this makes the find a full one million years older than any previous H. erectus skull found in Europe, and is indeed within a few hundred thousand years of the oldest H. erectus finds anywhere. If further testing holds this result up, the implications for hominid migration theories will be profound.
