1.8M-year-old human tooth found by archaeologists

Archaeologists in the country of Georgia recently found a tooth that they think is about 1.8 million years old.

The tooth was found near the village of Orozmani, which is near Dmanisi. In the 1990s and 2000s,

human skulls from about the same time were found in the same area. 

Reuters says that when the skulls were found in Dmanisi, they were the oldest of their kind to be found outside of Africa.

The recent discovery of a human tooth near Orozmani is more proof that early humans may have gone to the South Caucasus area first after leaving Africa,

Scientists think that the first people left Africa about 2 million years ago, as reported by Reuters.
