外文标题：Chinese archeologists find another half-million year old site like Peking Man
BEIJING: China said its archeologists have discovered another site showing human activity dating back 300,000 to 500,000 years, roughly contemporary with Peking Man.
Archeologists were led to the discovery after they excavated a stone tool at a limestone quarry site on Luotuo Hill in the northeast coastal city of Dalian in Liaoning Province, the Chinese language Guangming Daily, said. They found dozens of stone, animal bone and horn tools at the site.
It said researchers have obtained more than 1,000 samples in the joint excavation exercise conducted by the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Dalian Natural History Museum.
An institute researcher, Huang Weiwen, said the presence of stone tools and large animal bones that appear to have been cut or smashed by humans is an indication that the site was used for large-scale human activity in the early days.

For those of you who are saying that this means that the 'cradle of life' began in China and not Africa are delusional. It still begn in Africa (in terms of bacterial form however, it would be Pangea). Though the birth of civisation remains as the Indus Valley civilisation of Mohenjo Daro, run by, ironically the Sindhus (ancient pagan Hindus).

I suppose you believe ICANN is "the cradle of the internet". Any more sites on CNNIC?

Interesting find hope this can be independently verified. It is a fasinating field of study.soon we may be saying the cradle of civilisation is in China, Africans wont be to happy.
Chinese has been there for millions years, but in contrast Indians are the offspring of invaders. That's why the glory of ancient India history can't explain modern India's backwardness.
