A small milk-tooth found in Northern Italy is believed to be 48,000 years old.

Scientists looking at the object believe that the tooth belonged to a child between 11 and 12 years old.

The tooth was found by a group of researchers from the Universities of Bologna and Ferrara, who have recently published a paper in the Journal of Human Evolution.

An analysis of the tooth found it is related to Neanderthals that had lived in Belgium.
