Ancient Stone Tool a Clue to Early Human Migrations

Archaeologists working in Turkey have unearthed a 1.2-million-year-old stone tool.

The new tool, a flaked piece of quartz discovered in the town of Gediz, is the oldest reliable evidence of ancient humans living in what is now Turkey. The piece could help scientists recreate early humans' migrations from Africa.
