Now a team of scientists – two South Africans, two Americans – have confirmed that fire was first utilised on the African continent, not elsewhere. Through the expensive technology of the modern age, and in particular electron spin resonance, their results lead them to believe that the first small, tentative technological steps that eventually led to the giant leap of lunar exploration began in southern Africa more than 1 million years ago.

Swartkrans is a dark cave in the Cradle of Humankind, about a kilometre west of Sterkfontein. (Sterkfontein is where the rare, virtually complete Little Foot skeleton was discovered, and the Cradle of Humankind is one of the richest palaeontological sites in the world).
