Perforated marine gastropod shells at the western Asian site of Skhul and the North African site of Oued Djebbana indicate the early use of beads by modern humans in these regions. The remoteness of these sites from the seashore and a comparison of the shells to natural shell assemblages indicate deliberate selection and transport by humans for symbolic use. Elemental and chemical analyses of sediment matrix adhered to one Nassarius gibbosulus from Skhul indicate that the shell bead comes from a layer containing 10 human fossils and dating to 100,000 to 135,000 years ago, about 25,000 years earlier than previous evidence for personal decoration by modern humans in South Africa.

I'll stick to my beliefs on history and it is this - We have no blues clue what happened more than a couple hundred years ago and most of the "believed" history is just guess work on rough evidence that can be examined a dozen times and have a hundred different outcomes.

We just blossomed about 10,000 BCE, into agriculture, math, writing, etc etc etc.
stayed primitive far longer than previously thought. I mean, were more 'Advanced' earlier than previously thought. Then we blossomed 240,000 + or - years later. I guess it's a matter of perspective?

That could be a politician posing for a photo shoot.
Why is his skin coloring so light. Hardly likely especially considering the location of the dig.
I mean, Jesus is one thing, always pale. But our ancestors back this far, hardly likely in this part of the world
