The Blombos site looks that Moorad shared looks interesting I did a google site and found that the article is not hype. There is a fair amount known about this site. I include another newspaper article and a museum blurb. See url: http://cogweb.ucla.edu/EP/Blombos.html and http://www.museums.org.za/sam/muse/9904.htm
Perhaps Glenn or someone else into anthropology can comment on the significance of this site. I checked ASA archives and didn't see any comments on this site in our archives.
