Researchers say people started using
to cook food 600,000 years before
thought. Archeologists from a university in Israel claim that our early
used fire to cook fish 770,000 years ago. These
humans lived alongside the
of the Jordan River in present-day Israel. They used fire to cook "
fish" they caught in a nearby
. Until this new
, scientists believed that the first "
evidence" of cooking was by Neanderthals and early Homo sapiens, around 170,000 years ago. The researchers will now look for more
of prehistoric cooking.
