An archaeological team studying the fossil record of an ancient civilization at Sibudu Cave, north of Durban in the KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa, has discovered in a shelter carved out of the sandstone cliff face bedding,
from 40,000 years ago to the oldest remains found of 77,000 years ago.
This is another huge discovery. It wasn’t that long ago, a discovery was made in East Timor that man was Deep Sea Fishing 42,000 years ago. Now to find bedding this old in Africa must be beyond belief for the team working at this site. The mats that was used to sleep on was made from plants in the area and was made in compact layers, the plants also had a natural pest repellent as well. There was also evidence of the people burning their bedding regularly.
