Mythology of modern dating methods
In the interior of this mound, human bones were found, of uncommonly large size.” At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings.And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.
A team of archaeologists has announced the discovery of over a thousand stone artifacts, with some of them being up to 1.76 million years old.The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.But one aspect is often overlooked, and has recently been puzzling archaeologists: the glue that fixes the point to the shaft.For this, Neanderthals used tar from birch bark, a material that researchers often assumed was complex and difficult to make.The world's oldest known glue was made by Neanderthals. Leiden archaeologists have discovered three possible ways and published their findings in Scientific Reports, 31 August.
A Neanderthal spear is predominantly made up of two parts, a piece of flint for the point, and a stick for the shaft.
Its cities and population were minuscule in comparison to those of the neighboring empires of Egypt and Mesopotamia.
Likewise, its material culture was poor in comparison to the splendor and extravagance of theirs.
So, precisely controlling the temperature of the fire is not as important as was initially thought.' Kozowyk and his colleagues show that Neanderthals discovered tar production by combining existing knowledge and materials. Guest Author, Satellite Archaeologist, and Independent Researcher, William James Veall updates his recently published article on "Antarctica Writings" on Ancient Origins, to include an alternative perspective by epigrapher, educator and anthropologist, Dr Clyde Winters, Ph. Chicago, USA, concerning the identification and transliteration of the inscriptive material.
Neandertals may have started with a simple method that required only fire and birch bark, and later adopted a more complex method to obtain higher yields of tar. A team of archaeologists investigating a cave in Israel, claims to have found evidence that prehistoric tools and artwork from Western Europe could possibly owe their existence to an earlier culture...
Archaeology and the Bible The story of how and why the Bible was written and how it fits into the extraordinary history of the people of Israel is closely linked to a fascinating tale of modern discovery.
