Abstract: Humans dispersal into northern Africa is thought to be happened later than 2.6 million years ago. However, we discovered two archaeological deposits estimated to 2.4 and 1.9 million years ago at the site of Ain Boucherit, Algeria. The evidence argues either for a rapid dispersal of stone tool manufacture from East Africa or for possible multiple origins of stone tool manufacture.
