Viewpoint post on world's oldest ground-edge ax for SAPIENS

A quick update to direct everyone's attention to the recently published op-ed Jacq Matthews and Martin Porr authored for SAPIENS. This piece is our attempt to put the recent news of the world's oldest ground-edge ax, published by Peter Hiscock and colleagues in Australian Archaeology in May, into a critical but accessible context and discuss how this find challenges some problematic assumptions in human origins research. You can read it here, A Ground-Edge Ax Rewriting Australia's Early Human History!

Our thanks to the hard-working editors at SAPIENS for their assistance and guidance on bringing this piece to fruition!
