Contradicts the history of mankind: a prehistoric hand ax found in the desert, which is 300 thousand years old

In the middle of the barren desert of Oman, a team of archaeologists have stumbled upon extremely strange burial mounds, the contents of which may partly rewrite the history of mankind as we know it. Among other things, scientists discovered a prehistoric hand ax of skillful manufacture, its age is determined at 300 thousand years. At the same time, it is well known that the first tools of this type became known to man only in the Upper Paleolithic, that is, only 12 thousand years ago.

The ax was perceived as the most necessary tool in ancient societies. They saw the presence of mysterious forces, fortune-telling was also associated with them – the invention of axionomancy is attributed to the Persian magician Ostan. Therefore, the discovery of several axes in an ancient mound is quite understandable in itself: representatives of an unknown tribe simply left an instrument endowed with a sacred meaning in a sacred place.

Dating caused much more questions – radiocarbon analysis determined the age of the ax at 300 thousand years. No known society of that time could have had anything like it. And the Rub al-Khali desert itself has never been considered a place where a large civilization developed.

In terms of time, the find correlates with the first waves of human migration from Africa. That is, a highly developed culture came to the desert, and then suddenly and completely disappeared without a trace,” said Professor Alzhbeta Danielisova from the Prague Institute of Archeology.

Excavations at the site of the found ax will continue for at least several more months. Now archaeologists want to understand whether the strange civilization left other traces of its existence.
