Archaeologists Discover Features Indicating 40,000-Year-Old Cultural Settlement in Northern China

Archaeologists from the  Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Germany , have found a unique 40,000-year-old cultural site at Xiamabei in the Nihewan Basin in Northern China. They have discovered blade-like stone tools and ochre (a natural clay earth pigment) stains and processing units during archaeological excavations. Xiamabei has been one of the favourite archaeological sites for researchers as it contains cultural features and evidence showing  human evolution .

While you wouldn’t want to get caught on one of our quality mother daughter time, this got me thinking about how deep this difference between extroverts and introverts really is.
