What do you know about the Ishango bone? It’s a mathematical artifact found in the Congo. Dating back to about 20,000 years ago, this bone is carved with simple notches that symbolize mathematical and astronomical notations that scientists are still attempting to understand. And there are others like it.
Examples include the Thaïs Bone (12,000 years old, France), the Abri Blanchard Bone (27-34,000 years old, France), the Wolf Bone (30,000 years old, Czech Republic), and the Lebombo Bone (35,000 years old, Southern Africa).
