British scientists say they have found the oldest known evidence of war.

Researchers discovered the remains of 27 people near Lake Turkana in northern Kenya. Scientists say they believe the remains are from a Stone Age culture of about 10,000 years ago. The so-called Nataruk fossils show signs of a violent attack.
 
The dig also uncovered weapons including arrows, clubs and stone blades. The scientists published a paper on their findings in the journal Nature.
 
Marta Mirazon Lahr was the lead investigator. She is a paleoanthropologist at the University of Cambridge in Britain. She wrote that the victims were people who hunted, fished and gathered plants for food.
 
She described the 10,000-year-old battle in which they were killed as a “brutal” attack.
 
One skeleton was found with a blade of volcanic glass still stuck in his head. A woman in late pregnancy appeared to have been bound by her hands and feet.
 
Our species arose 200,000 years ago in Africa. Many experts had thought war did not begin until humans started to form settled communities. But the Nataruk people were nomadic hunter-gatherers of an earlier period.
 
So, scientist Lahr says, the findings “raise the question of whether warfare has been part of the human experience for much longer than previously thought."
 
The remains found included 21 adults and six children. Most of the children were younger than 6.

英国科学家们称,已经发现了已知最古老的战争证据。

 
研究人员在肯尼亚北部的图尔卡纳湖附近发现27具尸体。科学家称他们相信遗体来自一万年前左右的石器时代,所谓的纳塔鲁克地区化石表明了一场暴虐斗争的迹象。
 
从这个坑还挖掘出包括箭、棍棒和石剑等武器。科学家就其发现在《自然》期刊上发表了一篇论文。
 
Marta Mirazon Lahr是研究的主管。她是英国剑桥大学的一名古人类学家,她写道称受害者均是狩猎者、捕鱼者和采植物为食者。
 
她将这场导致他们惨死的发生于一万年前的战斗描述为“残忍的”斗争。
 
一具骸骨发现时还有块火山玻璃嵌进头骨。一名妊娠晚期的妇女手脚都被捆绑。
 
二十万年前,人类种族起源于非洲,许多专家曾认为战争自人类形成定居族群后开始。但是纳塔鲁克地区人类是更早期的游牧狩猎采集者。
 
所以,科学家Lahr称该发现“提出质疑:战争作为人类历史的一部分,是否比人们之前认为的更早。”
 
发现的遗骸包括21具成人和6具孩童。其中多数孩童不到六岁。
