The ‘Petralona man’, or Archanthropus of Petralona, as it has since been called, was found to be 700,000 years old, making it the oldest human europeoid (presenting European traits) of that age ever discovered in Europe. Dr Poulianos’ research showed
Mungo Man was discovered by Jim Bowler on 26 February 1974 when shifting sand dunes exposed his remains. He was found near Lake Mungo, one of several dry lakes in south-western New South Wales. The body was sprinkled with red ochre, in the earliest k
If the stone’s sonic properties were a motivating factor for those who transported them approximately 200 miles to the Stonehenge site, it may help further explain why some historic artifacts have claimed the rocks had mystical properties. Earlier th
Last year scientists at the University of Padua in northern Italy dated it to between 300BC and AD400 – still hundreds of years after Christ, who is believed to have died between 30-36AD. [ this writer has no clue - arclein] Other scientists have p
The oldest hominid prints ever found, at Laetoli in Tanzania, are about 3.5 million years old, while those found at Lleret in Kenya in 2009 – of people who seem to have walked erect and with a similar gait to modern humans – have been dated to around
Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous. A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being b
the strains of Yersinia pestis from the plague victims were distinct from those involved in the Black Death, the later pandemic which killed an estimated 60% of the European population. According to Associate professor Jeremy Austin,
. The Mesolithic man, who lived in Spain around 7,000 years ago, had an unusual mix of blue eyes, black or brown hair, and dark skin, according to analyses of his genetic make-up.
Camels were not domesticated in Israel until centuries after the Age of the Patriarchs - when Abraham, Jacob and Issac are said to have lived - between 2,000 and 1,500 BC. Dr Erez Ben-Yosef and Dr Lidar Sapir-Hen of Tel Aviv University's Depar
Archaeological and linguistic studies of the region can make sense of the discovery. They suggest that a subset of the Khoisan, known as the Khoe-Kwadi speakers, arrived in southern Africa from east Africa around 2200 years ago. Khoe-Kwadi speakers w
he Voynich manuscript, pictured, was discovered in an Italian monastery in 1912 by book dealer Wilfred Voynich. Carbon dating suggests it was created between 1404 and 1438. The 240 pages of the book are made from a type of parchment produced using ca
The conclusion made by the commissioned Geologists was that the wall is an outcrop of a large ignimbrite, a natural formation, created about 330,000 years ago.
Following the discovery of some fossils higher up in the same rock formation that hosted the Burgess Shale biota, researchers hit a new motherlode. The researchers have recovered over 3,000 specimens of 55 different organisms in 15 days
One of the poems is remarkably well preserved and adds greatly to what is known about Sappho and her poetic technique. The two poems came to light when the owner of an ancient papyrus, dating to the 3rd century A.D., consulted an Oxford classicist, D
What role does pre-existing vulnerabilities play for people who experience a climate shock?
Evidence came from the Qesem Cave, an archaeological site near present day Rosh Ha’ayin, about 7 miles east of Tel Aviv, where excavations have been underway for more than a decade. It is not the first time signs of fire were found in Qesem Cave - e
More artefacts were discovered that show the economic and agricultural activities of the settlement, proof of animal breeding and their diet preferences as well as tools and pottery, figurines and other personal ornaments.
Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province in the Inca Region, on the south coast of Peru.
This recently-discovered bridge has been found to be made of a chain of limestone shoals. Its unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is man made. The bridge currently named as Adam’s Bridge (most popularly
Through the actions of an extremely valued member of our inner group, my team and I recently made contact with archaeological researchers Rex and Heather Gilroy, and agreed to meet and discuss our common areas of interest.
The Paracas skulls, however, are different. The cranial volume is up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than conventional human skulls, meaning they could not have been intentionally deformed through head binding/flattening. They also conta
Until now, however, no one knew why so many well-preserved fossils were found in that region. In a new study published in Nature Communications, researchers discovered that this remarkable preservation might have been the result of
Scattered throughout central and southern Egypt, the provincial pyramids are located near major settlements, have no internal chambers and were not intended for burial. Six of the seven pyramids have almost identical dimensions, including the newly u
My own work opened up the whole Pleistocene Nonconformity debate after the book of Rand Athes on the necessity of a crustal shift which I then linked in 2007 to impact phenomena since identified as a huge targeted comet impact. Science is about half

Now, researchers have built a model predicting where signs of pre-Columbian agriculture are most likely to be found, a tool they hope will help guide future archaeological work in the region. Big picture. A new model of the Amazon predicts that terra
It wasn’t until 1828 that the first scientific study was made of Pobiti Kamani, commissioned by the Russian General Dibich. Later, in 1854, Pobiti Kamani was visited by the British geologist William Hamilton. Hamilton was the first to hypothesise a m

However neither the archaeologists, nor apparently the locals realized the pyramid was a pyramid. It was believed to be a natural hill, somewhat modified by human activity, until Natawidjaja and his team began a geological survey here in 2011. By the
