According to researchers, this fact and the inability to adapt to climate change led to the disappearance of ancient people. Scientists say that for the manufacture of stone tools, the representatives of this type used the first stones, which are often inferior in quality to those used by the people of the modern type.

In the study, researchers examined the location of ancient sites of archaic people, where were found artifacts made of stone, which lay at the foot of the hill. At the same time, the hills were untouched breeds that are more suitable for creating tools.

According to researchers, the ancient people have not changed their approach to the creation of instruments even when environmental conditions began to change.
