“In this undated photo made available in May 2015 by the Mission Prehistorique au Kenya – West Turkana Archaeological Project, Sonia Harmand and Jason Lewis hold stone tools found in the West Turkana area of Kenya. The artifacts, dated at 3.3 million years old, are much older than the earliest known trace of our own branch of the evolutionary family tree.
