The Mercury of June 5, 2008 reports that archaeologists have discovered what they believe is a 60-thousand-year-old arrowhead in the Sibudu cave outside Tongaat. The finding was revealed in article written by Dr Lucinda Backwell and Prof. Lyn Wadley, with Franesco d’Errico as a co-author, and published in the Journal of Archaeological Science. The arrowhead is 20000 years older than any other evidence of bow and arrow technology in the world. Our area is rich with archaeological sites including the Sibudu cave where humans have lived for an unimaginably long time, and its high time I did did a story on that.
