Chimps also supposedly develop attachments to interesting little objects and carry them around for a while. Eventually they loose interest and drop
'em. Looks like this is somethign similar.

i know that homo sapiens leanred one thing from the neaderthals . . .
how to have sex facing each other
Atra! Atra!! 'Quest for Fire' was awesome.
Gazrok, I think that they were saying that the object was microscopically examined and found to not have any unnatural markings.
edit to add:
Just remembered something. Don't have a ref or know if its found in older associations but. Apparently paleoanthro people find weird little wads of
worked tree sap in lots of sites and collections that are about the right time to be con-current with various pre-men (hmm, memory is fuzzy, maybe its
only genus homo
?). They are thinking that they'd collect this sap and chew it, like taffy or gum. Apparently there is lots of it found all
over the place. I kind of like that, cave-men walking around, chewing gum. "Sfunny too, i just had a 'fruit flavoured' tootsie roll. Nice and
chewy. Guess the more things change the more they stay the same no?
