The discovery of this artistic, beach-loving, lobster-chomping hominid (I do hope they christen him "Bronte-saurus") is invaluable to the understanding of our forebears. "It is hard to get into the mind of early people and find out what they were thinking," a University of NSW archaeologist, Dr Andy Herries, said.* I've never liked the Savannah hypothesis. he first time I read about AAT it made perfect sense. Evolution requires purpose. The first spear was for impaling fish. The first rock tool was for breaking shellfish. It's all so very logical. I daresay it will become the accepted theory over time. The savannah one is pretty much out the window now.
