Evidence that cacao seeds, the raw material used to make chocolate, were being consumed more than 5,000 years ago has been found in southeastern Ecuador.

I would love to know what one of those fermented drinks made with chocolate tasted like.

I am unconditionally in love with the pottery of pre-colombine America. It is so expressive, so rich, so surprising ... So different to the one in Eurasia...

wasn't it bitter?

Hmmm....Did they have chocolate covered corn?

Amazing!

Those vases are supposed to be 5000 yo?.

The faces are cracking me up.

That’s a smart civilisation!

Interesting!

Which culture was at the habitation site?

Caleb Tucker

So cool.

Yes chocolatl

Just some joe Rogan kettlebells

Indigenous Americans are the world's greatest agriculturalists.

The chocolate we eat today is way different than the stuff Indigenous People had. There were no milk producing animals here and it was only a drink for Royals. Cacao beans are still fermented before being ground for chocolate.

I think your wrong...these are definitely treasures that drake is supposed to find in his adventures

I wonder who the first person was that looked at cacao seeds and said “I wonder what happens when I harvest cacao beans, ferment them for seven days, roast them, remove the shells to extract the nibs; grind and liquify the nibs to produce cocoa liquor, process the liquor into solids and cocoa butter, and then mix cocoa liquor, cocoa butter, milk, sugar, and vanilla all together and then conch it for 72 hours to reduce the cocoa and sugar particles to a size smaller than the mouth can detect, and then temper it past the six different cocoa butterfat crystalline forms and then form it into thin bars?” 😂

Ecuachamos Fc, some props for Ecuador.

Is there a name for this type of "bottle"? Do the two necks serve a purpose?

these double neck pottery was extended almost to lima, so transporting was easier if you have to travel those distances

Tang was only used on the long stellar voyages.

It's in water, they re standing in waist high water! I wish Archaeology would have documentaries about these finds! Available for viewing on Netflix of or Amazon! I love the Egyptian find there so facinating!

Maria Nilsson and John Ward

Great new discoveries! How neat!

Shared-thank you so much!! ⚒⚒

Mikey Hall did you see this?

Suuuper!! Templo d los cocodrilos!!!

I was just the two weeks ago!!!!

I wonder how people would feel if it were a cemetery in the states and they were digging up your great-great-grandfather and mother... oh wait the Indigenous already know that horror.

Reminds me of fleur-de-lis

Tartaria!

French fleur-de-lys in Japan? Wow, not expected

By way of France

A very cool part of Japanese history that not many people know about. The transition from Kofun>Asuka period. I wish there was more stuff on it.

I have a version of this tile in my bathroom wall. 🙂

I had an exchange student from Shiga Prefecture...!!!

I would have believed it, whenbthe wrote found in England. Japan really?

Fleur de lys in Japan?? Don't think so!

Those guys learned way early about molding beautiful utilitarian works of art! Beautiful!

Isn't that a samurai family crest?

Ce ne sont pas des fleurs de lys qui n'ont que 3 éléments et non 5 comme ici.

so apparently no one can spell or google fleur-de-lis. There is a passing resemblance, but also it's a flower so why would that be odd that two places had irises in their art?????

How can anyone believe that the earth and it’s people are any younger than this?

That Is Just Amazing!

I would love to see this, but my stupid fear of snakes! Gee whiz.

I thought this was the country when I first read it?

Wow

with an oxbow river such as this, the landscape of the area has changed many times over the millennia !!! 😛

A hematite "pencil" that researchers say may have been used by Denisovans to make deliberate reddish-brown marks and designs between 50,000 and 45,000 years ago has been discovered in Siberia's Denisova Cave (pictured).

BTW - searched the latest (Jan Feb 2019) issue of my Archaeology magazine and - this wasn't in it. Wish it would say what issue! I'd really like to see the pencil!!!

How could the possibly know the guys name?

Is it just me or does this look exactly like the cave where Grendel's mother lived in the Beowulf story... lol

If you look carefully at the picture you can spot the killer rabbit.

Thought I would see a pic of the hemitite 'pencil'.

Cool data found here that shows that Neanderthal and humans interbred.

its quite a coincidence that archeologist found a denisovan pencil inside a cave thats also called denisova, isnt it amazing lol

Yes.. where is the so called pencil...

Could it write upside down like an astronaut pencil?

Siegrun Maas

O cause I talked about drawing this morning so cavemen drew this week

Lee Rollins

Mathilde van den Berg

Pics or it didn't happen

Exciting find

Oh, fir gd sake, Denisovans are an extinct hominid identified by dna analysis from a fingerbone. Lots of their DNA mixed in New Guinea, Southeast Asia just like Europeans have Neanderthal. They are human, think of them, Neanderthal and Homo sapiens as different races. Fertile interbreeding happened. Only subsaharan Africans are pure Homo sapiens.

Oh snap, he was workin it.

This is so fascinating! can't wait until the investigation gets really rolling!

Why not leave the dead ones to rest in peace?

Rodney Allan Longford

These boots were made for walk-in...🎼🎼🎼

Carys Jeffrey

Men in thigh high leather boots. ALWAYS a good look!

Cause of death, please?

Wow, how did he live to be 500? Just kidding...great discovery.

Sounds like he was an archaeologist???

don't drink the water...

Those thigh boots are back in style. Just saying.

Oh snap, he was workin it.

I'm quite surprised boots were already made 500 years ago 😂

Werk!!!!

Wow .

Wearing Go Go Boots?

Predates concrete boots i guess

The fifth musketeer?

My lord, May The Lord Rest his Soul, I Would Love To Know His Story. Thank You For Sharing With Us, God Bless

Most likely collecting worms for fishing. Wouldn’t have been any wellies back then

His body is too bootylicious for meh

I imagine that Mr. Fancy Boots spent the day drinking and showing off his fine new footwear, before falling into the Thames whilst hammered. The boots probably filled up with water and mud and Mr. Fancy Boots drowned.

An early "Mudlark", or a tragic fishing accident?

Mikey Hall it’s been a good week for BA and Egyptian archaeology

I bought one of those at Pier 1.

I know a demon tablet when I see one.

Ria Martin

and look . . its round . . . ROUND FLAT EARTHERS!!!

Lisa Sheppard Holmes

Maybe telling of real occurences

The srivijaya empire in Indonesia also has that way of writing in a stone that has been discovered by arkeologist the difference is that it was on Sanskrit writing (that is the probability of a stone era)

There’s a talk on it. youtu.be/s_fkpZSnz2I

Nice

In an unusually successful feat of archaeological sleuthing, researchers at the British Museum were able to determine precisely when and from exactly which site a set of Sumerian artifacts was stolen.

Does the British Museum plan to return the items they have stolen?

It’s only coincidental that BM owns the largest collection of stolen artifacts.

now return them to where they belong

Katie Shead irony

They have practise in thievery they should know...

So have you returned the items back to the country of origin?

Good but I qoute Steve Bowen: Does the British Museum plan to return the items they have stolen?

who owns them ?

Yeah... awkward

Something so precious stolen. By swine!

Oohh, the Brits must be very good at that lol

jibraltar es español y no quieren devolverlo , siempre robando .

So this page is basically an esoterically embedded messaging system? Thanks!

Since all of you suddenly have a degree in anthropology you should know that these countries were selling every last one of their artifacts on the black market before the British took them. When you're poor you don't really care about your history. They can't be returned for the same reason. Sorry to ruin your anti-white narrative with facts.

The British Museum ? Just how many objects did you took from other countries ? When will you give back the Parthenon Fresco ? And all you've took without permission over centuries ? Because taking without permission is considered stealing by others .. Even in the name of science

Note for 2109's thieves: dig a little more to get the 2193's loot.

Undoubtedly they'll hunt down the descendants of the thieves and force them to make reparations and a public apology.

Sediment core samples taken from lakes in southeastern Peru, which show changes in the ratios of signature chemicals found in human and ruminant feces, suggest that the domestication of alpacas first began around A.D. 600.
