A team of archaeologists led by Dr. Marlize Lombard from the University of Johannesburg in South Africa have discovered the first direct evidence of the use of arrows by man. The information, published in the journal Antiquity last week, reveals that several ancient arrowheads, dated over 64,000 years, were discovered in a Sibudu cave, about 40 kilometers north of Durban. Traces of glue on the tips of the cut stones show that humans, even at that time, could construct complex tools.
