On Crete, New Evidence of Very Ancient Mariners

• NY Times
Early humans, possibly even prehuman ancestors, appear to have been going to sea much longer than anyone had ever suspected.

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.
