The following list contains the oldest artifacts that experts have had the pleasure of studying. Each of them has their own mysteries attached to them, as you are about to see.
The Venus of Hohle Fels is quite strange, as it is believed to be a kind of statue intended to show sexuality and reproduction in general from about 35-40,000 years ago, Nicholas J. Conard himself made the discovery in the cave of Hohle Fels. since, according to him, nobody knows what else he could want to represent.
The Löwenmensch statuette is also now between 35 and 40,000 years old, but what is particularly strange is the fact that although the first fragment was discovered in 1939 by Otto Volzing, the current statue was only completed in 2009. It was discovered in 2009 Hohlenstein – Germany’s Stadel Cave.
Bone flutes are by far the oldest instruments created specifically for entertainment. They are between 42 and 43,000 years old and, as far as we know, have been discovered in the Geissenkloesterie cave in Germany.
Skhul cave accounts are rare, to say the least. We recommend gifting one of these to his girlfriend or boyfriend, as we honestly can’t think of anything more romantic to get them than what seems to be the oldest jewelry known to man. Imagine receiving these 100,000 years ago, bruised to say the least.
The Blombos cave painting production study also dates back 100,000 years, but was discovered in South Africa in 2008 and was hidden deep in the cave as far as we know, as it took more than 16 years of excavation to get there.
Acheulean stone tools, on the other hand, are much older. They are now 1.76 million years old and interestingly they have been discovered all over the world with the oldest being discovered in Kenya.
Oldowan stone tools have been believed to be the oldest man-made tools for a while, and we really can’t blame the experts, as they are actually 2.6 million years old.
In 2015, however, the title was taken from Lomekwi Stone Tools. These are 3.3 million years old and have been discovered in Kenya of all places.
