A new archaeological study has revealed that microliths seen in the Fa Hien cave in the tropical rainforests of Sri Lanka date to 45,000 years ago.

The paper in this regard has been published by scientists from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History alongside colleagues from Sri Lankan and other international institutions.

According to the researchers their existence at this location suggests a range of more diverse ecological contexts for their use by Homo sapiens.

According to scientists discovering these types of artifacts in this setting is significant as the tools have been most typically linked to hunting medium to large animals in grassland areas.
