Archeologists: Arctic was Inhabited by People as Early as 45000 Years Ago

Researchers from St. Petersburg established that marks on bones of a mammoth found in the Arctic are traces of early man’s hunting.

      The mammoth found near the polar station Sopochnaya Karga in 2012 is 45 thousand years old. Therefore people lived and hunted in the Arctic Siberia much earlier, than it was previously assumed, the senior research associate of the Paleolithic Department of the Material Culture Institute, RAS, Vladimir Pitulko said to a correspondent of TASS.

      Until recently the age of the earliest evidence of people’s habitat in the Arctic made 30 to 35 thousand years. However, the bones of the Sopkarginsky Mammoth (nicknamed Zhenya's Mammoth) found 600 km to the North of the Polar Circle, display marks obviously made with tools manufactured by a human being.
