Accurately identifying early Neolithic artifacts is a tough job—these arrowheads are over 10,000 years old, after all and requires researchers to carefully sift out other objects uncovered during surface collection and trench excavations. Currently, the oldest evidence for the use of the bow and arrow are small stone points found in Sibudu cave in South Africa, which are some 64,000 years old.
