Mary Leakey: 1913-1996; Mary Leakey was a British paleoanthropologist who discovered the first fossilized Proconsul skull, an extinct ape now believed to be ancestral to humans. She discovered the Zinjanthropus skull at Olduvai Gorge where she developed a system for classifying stone tools. She also discovered the Laetoli footprints, Hominin fossils that were more than 3.75 million-years-old. She also discovered fifteen new species of other animals, and one new genus.

The Phoenician alphabet. Note that ’ and ‘ were originally full consonants in the Phoenician language (glottal stop and voiced pharyngeal respectively). Several of the letters were ambiguous (i.e. denoted more than one consonant phoneme) when the Phoenician alphabet was borrowed to write Old Aramaic and Biblical Hebrew, but there is no clear evidence of this for the Phoenician language itself.

The Phoenician alphabet, called by convention the Proto-Canaanite alphabet for inscriptions older than around 1200 BC, is the oldest verified consonantal alphabet.

The world's oldest man-made engraving has been discovered on a 500,000 year old Pseudon shell on the Indonesian island of Java. This means that the engraving is at least four times older than the previously oldest known engravings, found in Africa. A study, led by Leiden archaeologist José Joordens, has excluded the possibility that the pattern could have been caused by animals or by natural weathering processes and shows that the zigzag pattern is the work of Homo erectus.
