08.07.16 41,000 year old fire place discovered

A recent discovery on the Indonesian Island of Flores has shown that modern humans (Homo sapiens) were likely to be using fire and constructing 'fire places' to cook and keep warm some 41,000 years ago. The fire places, which are in such an excellent state of preservation, are allowing archaeologists a unique insight into the behaviour of our ancient relatives. Although they'll never find any evidence to support this, you just know that these guys also chilled out around their fires to talk about their day... "Man, I thought that sabre tooth tiger would never leave... what was that all about?"
