Early humans, possibly even prehuman ancestors, appear to have been going to sea much longer than anyone had ever suspected.
That is the startling implication of discoveries made the last two summers on the Greek island of Crete. Stone tools found there, archaeologists say,
are at least 130,000 years old, which is considered strong evidence for
the earliest known seafaring in the Mediterranean and cause for
rethinking the maritime capabilities of prehuman cultures.
