  • Descrição: A seven-member interdisciplinary team, led by archaeologist Naama Goren-Inbar of Hebrew University in Jerusalem, conducted a painstaking analysis of the distribution of burned wood, plant and seeds, and flint artifacts at Gesher Benot Ya'aqov in Northern Israel, and through which they claim that people first used fire some 800,00 years ago. If the claim is substantiated, it may help explain how early humans were able to push into the chillier climate of Europe after 800,000 years ago. Balter reports on the new evidence that claims that humans first controlled fire 790,000 years ago.
