Default I was suprised to find this online grains 790,000 tears ago?

The first solid evidence of human use of fire in Eurasia as early as 790,000 years ago has been found in excavations in Israel conducted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Institute of Archaeology.

"findings of burned fragments of flint, wood, fruit and grains, indicating that the early humans living at Benot Yaaqov knew how to control fire and use it to process food."
