Before that, the earliest known amputation involved a 7,000-year-old skeleton found in France. It turns out that Stone Age hunter-gatherers now living in the Indonesian province of East Kalimantan had advanced knowledge of medical anatomy.

The left ankle and foot of the skeleton found are missing. It was also revealed that they were deliberately mined by scientists. The skeleton belonged to a man who died at the age of about 20. Despite the incredible amputation, he apparently lived another six to nine years after the operation. And this means that ancient people knew how to treat wounds.
