Stone Age Color, Glue 'Factory' Found (58,000 yrs ago)
I find this fascinating.


"THE GIST

* A 58,000-year-old ochre powder production site has been discovered at Sibudu, South Africa.
* The end product -- ochre powder -- could have been used to color leather, to make adhesives and more.
* The "factory" site was intended to produce large quantities of red pigment in a short time frame."
