This does not exactly nail the “out of Africa” ideology, but is does sink the East Africa is the cradle of civilisation myth, and that is welcome: https://www.amren.com/news/2018/11/2-4-million-year-old-tools-found-in-algeria-could-upend-human-origin-story/ https://www.telesurenglish.net/news/New-Find-Threatens-East-Africas-Cradle-of-Civilization-Title-20181201-0009.html?utm_source=amerika.org&utm_medium=amerika.org&utm_campaign=amerika.org&utm_content=amerika.org&utm_medium=amerika.org&utm_term=amerika.org&ito=amerika.org&fbclid=amerika.org
“Archaeologists in Algeria have discovered stone tools and cut animal bones that may be up to 2.4 million years old, bringing into question East Africa’s title as the cradle of humanity, according to research published Thursday in the journal Science. The artifacts — more ancient than those discovered in the region until now — were found in Setif, some 200 miles (300 kilometres) east of Algiers, by a team of international researchers, including Algerians. The tools closely resemble those called Oldowan, found until now mainly in East Africa. The tools were unearthed near dozens of fossilised animal bones which contained cut marks, as if relics of prehistoric butchers. The bones came from animals including the ancestors of crocodiles, elephants and hippopotamuses.
