The ramifications of this find are, well, to say the least HUGE. If proven, and I believe it has been this shell tells a different story to what our History classes told us at  School. This brings BANG into question something I am always asking “Is there a huge piece of Earth’s history missing” And this shell brings that question tumbling down to Earth. This is History shattering at least. More when I find it, but this could change how we view our past

The ancient, big-bodied relatives of modern-day humans not only ate freshwater shellfish, but engraved their shells and used them as tools, a new study finds. Researchers in Java, Indonesia, discovered engravings on a shell that dates to between 540,000 and 430,000 years ago. Theancient artwork could be the oldest known geometric carving made by a human ancestor, the researchers said. It’s unclear what the engraving — a series of slashes and an “M”-shaped zigzag — means, but it could indicate that Homo erectus, the ancestor of modern humans, may have been smarter than was previously thought

A second look at a century-old shell collection uncovered remarkable engravings made on a freshwater shellfish shell in Java, Indonesia. The carving is the oldest known engraving made by a human ancestor, suggesting that Homo erectus, ancestor to modern-day humans, may have been smarter than was previously thought.
