Homo erectus may have travelled across the world's oceans as early as 130,000 years ago.
This idea is based on the discovery of stone tools on the island of Crete that couldn't have got there without seafaring capabilities. Until now early ocean crossings were thought to have only happened within the last 30,000 years.
