This picture shows The Grauballe Man...Gravballemanden

My favourite is the Tollund man. Even an incipient beard can be distinguised ... When I look at him I almost expect him to wake up at any minute. Awsome.

Amazing how detailed the stories are about the bog people and what happened to them.

Fascinating snapshots into life up to 8000 years ago

Murdered, like the others?

Very well preserved.

I m also waiting for Clay Tablets of Moses.When these Clay Tablets will be discovered with mummy of pharoa !

And they left it out there???? Why didn't they clean up their mess????

Oohhhhh....1st Hollywood dynasty. That's going back.

So, if they had found these. Let's say in 500 years. Someone would be saying that the Egyptians had explored the world further than anyone had previously thought............

Cool the first time I've seen it in color.

So sue the Studio get them to get out there in the desert clean up their mess

PROOF! The Egyptians were in the Grand Canyon! 😉

keep digging folks! You might find old soup cans and used toilet paper!

The truth is out there . . .

littering

Let's start a cult!

Przewalski’s horses from Mongolia, previously seen as truly wild creatures, have been found to descend from horses domesticated by the Botai people on the Central Asian steppes some 5,500 years ago.

Przewalski horses are dun colored with black points...and look mulish but with short ears...

Those of you saying it looks nothing like Przewalski horses need to actually read the article

a pure "Przewalski’s Horse" wouldn't be spotted like an appaloosa...but I do know there are people trying to repopulate them in some of the areas they have disappeared from so...maybe a mixed breed?

"The study also revealed that ancient Botai horses boasted “leopard spots,”" (Do read the summary before replying, guys.)

The study also revealed that ancient Botai horses boasted “leopard spots,” a trait caused by a gene that was also associated with night blindness. It was probably weeded out of the feral population that became Przewalksi’s horses by natural selection." (from the article)

And whatever THAT is supposed to be....it looks absolutely NOTHING like a real Przewalskis horse !!!

Read before thinking that photo is of a Przewalski, lol.

Just got my latest issue of Archeology. Love your publication.

Can't believe that this is real pic?

magnificent KEEP EM ALIVE! They are living Cave Art!!!!!

Part of Ghenghis Khan rural and urban transportation.

I thought they were found in the wild, dense forests of Poland. No?

Then this horse is a throwback? Interesting what genes come up with.

The shape of their faces are very similar to the cave art in Europe...♡♡♡♡

Yumeko your horse! 😀 (although people in the comments seem to disagree about the colour)

Very beautiful horse and interesting article!

The article isn't very helpful.

Guys that's not what those horses look like that's a photoshop job

ha!! proof that appaloosas were not worth a nickle even 5,500 years ago

What a beautiful animal regardless of its name.

Not Prezwalski, and Archaeo Mag, you should know that.

Total set up for loud mouths that don't read so good. 😀

Where's it's horn, how come it doesn't have a horn on it's head

beautiful and this one looks in foal too

Cave art in Spain tentatively dated to at least 64,800 years ago appears to have been created by Neanderthals, as this was some 20,000 years before the arrival of modern humans in Europe.

Not so many years ago, the cave art at Lascaux France was attributed to Cro Magnon man. I’d like to know what scientific proof exists to prove that Cro Magnon was not on the scene. Now, you must sift through much reading to find this info. Why is Cro Magnon as the Europeans ancestor being gradually erased from history?

Interesting, thinking that only Neanderthals were creating art in Europe, when 'modern' man had reached the shores of Australia, and were creating cave art there, 65,000 years ago. Maybe we need to consider human activity in Europe to be a lot older than 45,000 years old?? www.abc.net.au/news/science/2017-07-20/aboriginal-shelter-pushes-human-history-back-to-65,000-yea...

If we have Neanderthal DNA, that makes them our ancestors, as well, so it doesn't make sense to classify one group as our ancestors and Neanderthals as something else.

This could change our understanding of Neanderthals and especially the wide spread opinion they were not able to express abstract thought as well as we do.

But... "Fossils recovered from an old mine on a desolate mountain in Morocco have rocked one of the most enduring foundations of the human story: that Homo sapiens arose in a cradle of humankind in East Africa 200,000 years ago." theguardian. com/science/2017/jun/07/oldest-homo-sapiens-bones-ever-found-shake-foundations-of-the-human-story "Archaeologists unearthed the bones of at least five people at Jebel Irhoud, a former barite mine 100km west of Marrakesh, in excavations that lasted years. They knew the remains were old, but were stunned when dating tests revealed that a tooth and stone tools found with the bones were about 300,000 years old."

Vandalism at such an early age. Harumph.

Be interesting to see if the dates are confirmed and not confounded by any earlier finds of sapiens in Europe. If yes to the first and no to the second, this could be exiting.

Arielle Hardy my people

That would suggest to me that we need to rethink a timeline. Either modern humans were there earlier, or the dating needs to be clarified and refined. On the other hand, what other artifacts have been found for Neanderthals at this date? Anomalies need more investigation.

The Spanish and French caves are stunning and there is a real artistic trait to these depictions beyibd “Neanderthal”

Back to Spain again. Interesting.

Well, maybe they weren't as stupid as the Victorian's taught us to believe. Maybe they're the ones who painted some of the other caves, too. Or maybe the dating methods are all wonky. I've often wondered if we don't find neanderthal art because most of it might've been on perishable surfaces.

I think we had modern humans way before this.. in all areas of the planet.. they were in small groups because of periodic earth wide earth quakes... ✴️

Where is the art...?

The article doesn't say where in Spain or which caves. I'm only interested because I've visited Nerja and another smaller cave in Andalusia of which I cannot recall the name as that was about a decade or more ago.

Very neat share! Thank you!!!

From what I have read, most people of European extraction have a small percentage of Neanderthal genes. (I have 2.8%). Africans have none according to DNA analyses.

Duh....

That box shape is very nicely done...

A large-scale study of Beaker culture finds that, in Europe, the culture appears to have been spread via trade and imitation rather than mass migration.

YAY, migration of technology not people.

The painted design looks very similar to pottery designs in the American Southwest, traded via networks ranging from the American Southwest down into South America. They've found that not all communities made such intricate work, but certain areas specialized in and traded them for other goods.

pots aren't people

If I understand this correctly they are saying that the Beaker culture moved from Iberia to central Europe through imitation, but arrived from central Europe to Britain + Ireland through migration.

More Beaker Culture

The title is quite misleading: the paper actually indicates a substantial and large migration of people into Britain from Northern Europe, in contrast to trade and imitation in Iberia and Southern Europe.

Will this finally put the stupid idea of “material culture” in archaeology as any indication of people’s and culture to bed? Probably not but we can dream boiz. We can dream

They’re attractive pots. I’d buy one.

I thought we learned that lesson years ago. I can still hear my old college archaeology professor lecturing, "pots don't equal people". Trade, ideas, and imitation "migrate" much more often and quickly than groups of people.

That really makes sense. People are adaptable and will borrow what they consider to be good ideas, also there's the possibility that cultural loans follow on the heels of the adoption of extended and shared economic activities.

So, having read the article, does that mean that one group was not beaker at all, rather a misnamed group that used beaker technology?

Chad James Carignan so beautiful!!

not true

James Gilbert bloody beaker folk......

With finds like this I can't help thinking about the last hands that touched them. That's one of the beauties of truly old things hidden away for ages.

Don't miss out on the Jersey Celtic coin hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery. It's astonishing: www.jerseyheritage.org/celtic-coin-hoard

Thank you for teaching me that "detectorist" is, in fact, a word. (Even if Facebook, as I type it, insists that it is not.)

Detectorists. I love that show

That looks like the console full of change in my car after I spilled drinks on it a dozen times

Don't tell Lance and Andy.

Soooo many ninnies proving they think they're smarter and funnier than a headline and/or a caption, and not bothering to read an interesting article which actually would make them smarter.

Ugh, detectorists. Hate it when non archaeologists go play at archaeology.

Still valid thou! The history is un earthted by detectorist all over the world. Some backwards countries like Turkey it is still illegal to search for relics, even beach combing. I live here, and I miss my hobby terribly.

Someone’s savings that they never got to spend. Sad really.

Now that had to be fun and exciting......until they took it all away.

Pity, no longer legal tender LOL.

Stuffed we always dreamed of!

AHHH I want them all...lol third century Roman coins are so much fun.

Bernadette, you are so right! Jolly-0 I wanna go to London!

Nancy, thought you’d like this. 😊 $$$

Just bought a tin of Silvo, love to get cracking on these.

Must be from the IX. legion, thery ended up in Britain 😛

And they all bring the money to England

It is worth mentioning that this artifact is made of pink pyrophyllite schist. The raw material was most likely derived form deposits located in the vicinity of Owrucz (present-day Ukraine).

Interesting

Definitely looks like pipestone (catlinite)

Looks like it's carved from Catlinite....hmmm

The Egyptian engineers who designed the Great Pyramid of Khufu and a number of other pyramids may have used the shadow cast by a gnomon on the fall equinox to align the structures almost exactly with the cardinal points.

The fact that it was attributed to Khufu was a hoax. The frustrated archaeologist who first broke into one of the upper chambers, counterfeited Khufu's Cartouche to make a name for himself. Unfortunately, he made a mistake and it wasn't depicted properly.

3. No funerary text, hieroglyphics, or frescoes exists to depict the GP as a tomb. For the ancient Egyptians to spend so much time, energy and money to build such a monument and not spend one ounce of time or energy to decorate it in their customary elaborate, ornate funeral-ritualistic style to depict the awe-inspiring structure as a tomb for their great Pharaoh (King!) makes no common sense at all, especially since that is one of the most famous things the ancient Egyptians are so famous for! Think about that. 4. No physical evidence exists that proves a mummy was entombed in the stone Coffer, and no physical evidence of any personal possessions (artifacts) that were customarily placed in the tomb with the deceased has ever been found. Nothing. Nada. It's as if someone went through the entire pyramid and swept it clean with a broom. I find these equally strange."

we still calling this Khufu's pyramid? wow

I always wondered were the lid is to the sarcophagus in Khufu’s chamber is?? Ive never seen it it in the burial chamber.

What's the use of pyramid?

And they checked this with a compass?

Turns out this alignment was nothing special after all. You need a pole,string and sun, done.

Mas boludeces dicen sobre las pirámides, mas se demuestra que no se sabe un carajo sobre ellas y mas se ensalza, aún sin quererlo, el genio de esa clase dirigente brutal e implacable como todo imperio.

Amazing engineering and mathematics, given the remarkable accuracy with which the pyramids are aligned and designed. Kudos to the ancient builders!

Hy guys not knowing how they built it does’t mean they did not build it If they have copper and stone who said that we know all what they have Note all that obelisks they have been cut transferred hundreds of miles was it the Egyptians or what you think? What about the other tow pyramids And is there any funerary inscriptions there What about the still not discovered clues and chambers Until proven other wise the Egyptians built the pyramids and why they build them Its obvious Its for us to be wondering how Eternity

Falls in line with there views of the cosmos and their Gods who ruled them, appears there architecture was in line with universes building blocks

Well after reading all the reactions, it is back to astronomy. All older cultures were deeply involved in where our son, moon, and other stars were moving. Piggybacked on that was astrology - what was a fortunius time to make an event happen - start a war, start harvesting, and so on.

Wasn't it proven that the 3 pyramids and sphinx line up with orions belt and the constellation leo every so often?

Las pirámides y la esfinge tienen millones de años y fueron otras civilizaciones las constructoras!

Gnomon: the part of a sundial that casts a shadow. Interesting theory.

Occam's razor at it again.

Very smart details behind these...many of which we havent discovered,Im sure

I guess this one was a fashion model lol

I was going for a bottle opener then I realized what site I was on.

No, it really couldn't be. I'm guessing that's the view of a male archaeologist who has been on his own too much. It doesn't resemble a human, much less a woman.

looks like an old egg separator....

Looks like a cool piece of bone.....but don't see a figure.

Just as a two dimensional figure, only the empty head give it away... How did the scientist see a female here?

I wish the photo were better resolution than this: is the figure supposed to be in profile?

She was fat; not skinny as a bone... ha ha

Soup-spoon

ther fact it has a hole doesnt make it a doll.poor people in those days had no popypropylene or rubber, so they had to make their recreational toys harder

or it may simply have been a shaft straightener like those found in sites all over the world.

DNA extracted from a 1,000-year-old tooth found on an island in the Bahamas suggests that a modern population on Puerto Rico can be linked to the Taino, an ancient indigenous Caribbean group.

Puerto Ricans always knew this, or at least for a very long time. Not sure why this is news. University of PR did dna tests on local people and traced a good amount of taino dna in folks quite some years ago. so no they weren't all wiped out

The Spanish did a pretty good job of exterminating most of the Tiano, but given the Spanish didn't bring women with them, there should be relevant DNA in current occupants of the island.

Let me get this right; someone found a tooth on a beach, and it was determined to be 1.000 years old and of a Tiano variety. By this you concluded the island was inhabited by these people. Sorry that is a bit of a leap in logic for me. How do we know the tooth originated on that beach and wasn't washed there from some where else? Or that someone didn't have the tooth stuffed in a drawer with a bunch of stuff some ancestor left them ?I'm sure the Tiano people were probably there and if DNA done on indigenous people would probably have found that as well. I guess you get paid more for teeth though.

The the Caribs and Tainos were quite savage, regularly killing the Arawaks and Lucayans..... we learned this in pre school. The history is quite interesting bwfore Columbus came and after as well

In Puerto Rico you can still see people with Taíno physical traits and we use many words derived from their language.

Well duh!

Isn't that basically all the same place?! 😑

It is said that the Taínos were completely annihilated by the Spaniards.

Buuuuut, we knew that, right? I thought we knew that.

"... it had previously been believed that all traces of the Taino were wiped out within 30 years of the arrival of Europeans in the Caribbean. "

RTFA, possums!

Those Taino were everywhere down there back then.

And DNA extracted from a much more recent tooth suggests that coconut flavored rum is very popular.

We already knew this. Even Wikipedia has that info.

Not that surprising ,many of us knew this based on lots of factors,but it is nice that DNA now confirms it.

an ancient group wiped out by the white man... golly its sure pretty; lets go jet skiing, yea baby.

I've been aware of this for years too!

How can you tell from a footprint what extinct species it is?

They might have been going to the beach with a picnic for the kids and a carry out for the adults 😊

Amazing conclusion drawn from foot prints! Great detective work. Lol

or a smaller footed woman followed her man. the assumptions are just off the wall.

Better than leaving them home to be ate by the local predators

before babysitters became the go to while the parents are out to diner.

Haven't we always had the kids with us? Hunting or traveling?

Or didn't have a babysitter

Never mind that hunting hippos isn't a child's game!

They couldn't find a baby sitter, so the kids had to go with!

Who is it that says it must have been a hunting trip? I for one think it was a casual stroll to the mall.

Those are some wide feet.

Or they were just walking.

That is one hefty toe box.

Well,Technically,that s a Fortune in Production,If that Happens..about Plutonium Gas..not Liquid.

Priests and their parlor tricks. Been the same since the beginning of time

It would have seemed like a genuine "taking" by the god of the underworld if they didnt understand the concept of deadly gases. No parlor trick, just ignorance.
