Archaeologists in Zambia have unearthed the ancient remnants of what is believed to be the oldest wooden structure ever to be found. The remarkable discovery was reportedly made by researchers from the University of Liverpool and Aberystwyth University as they conducted an excavation at the country's Kalambo Falls. To their astonishment, the team found a pair of well-preserved logs which were joined together by way of notches crafted using stone tools. The rudimentary structure, which they theorize could have been the base of a platform or house, is thought to be an astounding 476,000 years old.
