From Where Expanded the Human Population

An analysis of about 3,000 stone tools from a 325,000-year-old archaeological site near the Armenian village Nor Geghi challenges the theory held by many scientists that the so-called Levallois stone tool-making technique was invented in Africa and then spread across the world as the human population expanded. Moreover, here people combined 2 different technologies, which assure us that 325,000 years ago they were very innovative.

7,500-year-old Observatory

Located in an area of around 7 hectares, Qarahunj is an astral stone observatory that charted the night sky, shows an incredibly sophisticated knowledge of the universe way before the Babylonians, which used to be thought the first astronomers. Our ancestors were the earliest recorded astronomers to create a calendar that divided the year into 12 segments of time, devises the compass, and envisions the shape of the world as round. They had mapped the constellations before the great pyramids were built. Qarahunj is at least 3,500 years older than British Stonehenge.
