The news article “A chunk of skull recovered from a Greek cave could rewrite human history” talks about a skull that was found in Greece (Usatoday.com, 2019). This skull showed signs of the earliest human species. The article states that the evaluation done by scientists showed that the skull was older than the jaw recovered in Israel. The skull was excavated from a cave in Greece four decades ago, and taken to the museum to be studied. A researcher from Germany, Harvati, was called to analyze the fossil. Together with other researchers, Harvati determined the age of the fossil by analyzing small parts of the bone at a time. (366 words)
