For those of you who live in the area and would like to time travel, until you manage to build your machine you will have to make do with books, the internet and going to museums. Talking of time travel, did you know that for instance, when the British Museum first opened its doors in 1759, most of the visitors believed that the world began in 4004 B.C. at nightfall preceding Sunday 23rd October in that year.
A huge tear in the earth’s surface
There was no reliable date until 1931 when a young archaeologist called Louis Leakey, set off for an expedition to Africa. Leakey was heading to Olduvai Gorge, a deep cleft in the savannah of northern Tanzania, not far from the border of Kenya. It is part of the East African Rift Valley which is a huge tear in the Earth’s surface.
When Leakey reached Olduvai, he studied exposed layers of rocks which acted like time capsules. As he examined the rocks which had been moulded by the elements over a long period of time, he reached a layer which had been shaped by human hands. They were discovered next to bones and it was obvious that the stones had been shaped into butchering tools to strip meat and break into the bones of animals hunted on the savannah. This was a huge breakthrough in making a timeline for the earth’s history as geological evidence established that the layer where the tools were found was approximately two million years old.
Leakey must have been beside himself as his excavations produced the oldest known humanly made artefacts anywhere in the world at that time. They also suggested that not only human beings but human culture had originated in Africa.
