Recent archaeological findings from Africa testify an early development of the cognitive and anatomic features of H.sapiens in this continent. In this work the author analyses a number of findings from African Middle Stone Age that show features of symbolic skills. These elements are related and compared with the European archaeological record to demonstrate the role of African sapiens in the development of symbolic skills many millenniums before the European "Revolution" of the Late Paleolithic.
