In 2008, the world’s oldest stone bracelet was discovered, the handiwork of a now-extinct species or population of humans called the Denisovans.
This incredible object was dated to between 40,000 and 50,000 years old, and was found in Stratum 11 of the world famous Denisova cave in the Altai region of Siberia and it is truly one of a kind, showing technical skills in fine stonework, long before we ever thought possible.
Whoever its wearer and whatever its importance, it is a find that fundamentally changed our views of the Denisovans, showing us they were far more advanced than we ever thought possible.
Watch this video to learn more about this incredibly rare and incredibly ancient discovery and find out why it should make us rethink the origins of human ingenuity.
