The use of stone tools is evidence of technnological sophistication.
Stone working is one of the most successful technologies used by humans, from 3.3 million years ago to the present day. So don't think its "primitive".
Morrison has shown a deft hand at balancing politics with his own ambition.

The primary legacy of Nazism was the second world war, which led to the deaths of more than 50 million people.
Nazi, fascist, ultra right-wing - these terms seem to be bandied about a lot these days. But what do they really mean?
If they are simply too large, your tonsils can be shrunk down using special instruments which remove the valleys and crypts.
Tonsil tissue is particularly important in the first six months of life. After this, our lymph glands take over most of the work and the tonsils are essentially out of a job.
Big data research could improve medical outcomes and reduce the waste of resources.
If we want My Health Record data to be made available for medical research we need to make it opt in, not opt out. We'll have a smaller dataset, but at least it will be ethically defensible.
If you discovered a new type of dinosaur, what would you name it?

In remote Northern Territory, most Aboriginal people have been buried in unmarked graves. Archaelogists are carrying out painstaking detective work to help communities find their loved ones' remains.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull campaigning at a Tasmania factory for Brett Whiteley, the Liberal candidate in the Braddon by-election.
On Saturday, five federal seats will have a byelection, with particular attention being paid to tight races in Longman and Braddon. And all have implications for the major parties and their leaders.

It’s hard to plan for future fertility.
Conversations about reproduction should be a routine part of medical care for transgender people – but assumptions and non-inclusive language can act as barriers to informed consent.

The Nipah virus in India is just one example of a viral outbreak in 2018.
It doesn't just seem like the world is experiencing more viral infections than before – it's a reality. And the way humans live today helps viruses thrive.

Feral rabbits previously exposed to myxoma virus are more likely to be killed by rabbit haemorrhagic diease, meaning that these two biocontrol agents can become even more powerful when used in tandem.

Brindabellaspis stensioi, an unusual placoderm fish from the 400-million-year old Burrinjuck reef in New South Wales, Australia.

Brindabellaspis had eyes on the top of the head, facing upwards, and a skull stretched into a long and broad snout. Although around 400 million years old, it was clearly a specialised fish.
