Experts find a very old tooth. The tooth belongs to a human. This human lives 1.8 million years ago. They find the tooth in Dmanisi, Georgia. Also, archaeologists find very old skulls here.

Scientists think that Georgia is the home of the oldest humans in Europe. The tooth proves the idea. Georgia is a very important place for experts. The first humans leave Africa 1.8 million years ago to go to Georgia.

The tooth is the oldest human fossil in Europe. The oldest human fossil is in Africa. It is around 2.8 million years old.

Difficult words: skull (the bones of the head), prove (to show that something is true), fossil (a very old part of an animal of plant, which people find in the ground).
