Stone inscriptions found in the Nile Valley provide evidence that humans were hunting elephants in Egypt as early as 5,000 BC. How man hunted such a large creature with such primitive weapons was unknown. Archaeologists at Israel's Tel Aviv University have discovered how humans hunted the largest animals on Earth long before that, in the Stone Age. Dr. Dr. Meir Finkel and Professor Ran Barkai are behind the new discovery.
