Archeologists have uncovered evidence suggesting that early humans braved cold temperatures to occupy highlands in Papua New Guinea 50,000 years ago in search of food.

The early settlers cleared land on the highlands to cultivate these plants, Summerhayes said. Stone axes found were likely to have been used for cutting vegetation and clearing forest patches to let in sunlight and to grow food and other useful plants.
