Archaeologists find 25,000-year-old human bones
trefwoorden: China - Beijing - skelet - 25.000 jaar oud
Archaeologists have discovered the bones of a human who lived 25,000 years ago, in a cave on the outskirts of Beijing.
The bones were found in the village of Zhoukoudian near the site where the Peking Man fossils were discovered.
Excavations began in the cave in 2001 after forestry workers discovered fossilised animals there.
The gender and exact age of the remains are still not known, although the news reports said they are believed to be those of an adult male, and that researchers estimated them to be 25,000 years old.
