According to new research, the effects of European colonization of the Americas, among other factors like widespread volcanic eruptions, contributed to climate cooling during the 17th century.

Well, ok, then, all we need to do to stop global warming and cool off the earth is just get busy going colonizing. Plus volcanos.

The Maunder Minimum caused the little ice age around the planet. The Sun had little to no sunspots on its surface for about 70 years. The current sunspot minimum cycle of 2018-19 is demonstrating how a lack of sunspots on the sun translates into cold, cloudy, and wet weather in the higher latitudes on Earth. The idea that 17th century colonists affected the planet's climate is vain, to say the least - especially when pitted against the power of a star.

No surprises there.

It did, OMG . Don't archeologist disturb the earth by digging it up!

54 million native American s died? - unbelievable and very sad

I'm sure the widespread volcanic eruptions had the MOST to do with it ...

Noooooope. That makes no sense whatsoever

More racist propaganda.

Wait, what?

Lmao! Ok sure

Reparations please

Hooey

And orange is the new black. Haven't read mention of global dimming in a while. Is anyone tracking that still?

It looks like man is responsible for both the cooling and the warming of the climate

Volcanoes vs 17th century colonization effects on climate is quite a stretch even for the most ardent climate-panic religionist.

There was relatively little forest-clearing in North America in the 17th Century.

Look at all these people refuting an academic study with the invincible power of opinion.

You have got to be kidding me.....🤦🏻‍♂️ One more stupid post like this one.......and I’m out.

When you wipe out entire populations dragging smallpox behind you that is the result you get?They rave about being civilised when they have been anything but? Those they wiped out could have told us so much about how to better conduct our lives & now its lost!

Look at the white colonists below losing their heads over empirical evidence. Sorry guys, reality doesn't conform to your ignorant opinions. Maybe you should read more and comment less? Read the original logs from early colonialists and note their interaction with indigenous. It will then be clear how your opinions mean absolutely nothing.

In 1878 the grave of a Viking warrior, buried with horses, iron weapons, and the whalebone game pieces shown here, was excavated near Birka, Sweden. Genetic analysis has now confirmed that the warrior was female.

It was a ceremonial burial she was not a warrior.

Tap the blue link and read the narrative before jumping to conclusions and being so quick to comment.

“Female” until we know what it identified as.

I came here for the inevitable posts by the Troys, Davids, and Jims. Thanks, fellas; you may fail at being g armchair warriors but your comments never fail to amuse.

Viking is an action not a designation.

How do we know she was a Viking and not just a stay at home mom . Remember the word Viking just means an explorer or traveler .

Viking women were strong-U wouldnt catch any of them wearing a Head Covering

why did you capitalize a verb?

Had to have something to do.

This nonsense again!

Was the whale a Male or female? It's a much more important question.

INB4 all the guys coming on here: "Nuh uh! I work at Arby's but I can assure you that there were no female warriors and also I have Viking blood so I know and William the conqueror is me ancestor. Also make a sandwich for me."

Neanderthals and modern humans split from a common ancestor more than 800,000 years ago—significantly earlier than previously thought—according to a new study on the rate of changes in tooth shape for eight ancient hominid species.

I think dogs are evolving even faster- they split from wolves 33,000 years ago and are almost more like us than we are ourselves...

Neanderthaloid teeth have been recovered from ancient remains in Brazil.

Iris Altamira checa

But where were those "Humans" all those years until the first signs of them some 200.000 years ago ??

I just do not buy the splitting off from a common ancestor theory...

Siegrun Maas

Basing too much conjecture on too less evidence.

Human and Chimpanzee share common ancestor Sahalanthropus who used to live seven million yrs ago.

I don't know about her analysis. She's assuming even evolution.

I thought the new term for hominids was hominins??? At least me forensic anthro classes do

Enough to make the top part of dentures

Supposition

Still close enough to mate and have fertile offspring... Not really a clean separation genetically.

Evidence of Neanderthals and modern humans having coupled, has been uncovered some time ago,The first mixed marriage it seems..

Nieman Marcus sells paints just like these for $1200.

I have a pair of weekend jeans that look just like that. I love them so much......or maybe I just love weekends .

Appreciation for the research by the archiologists including consulting with fashion designer to attempt to recreate this garment -- and test it as to it's usefulness in riding and walkiing.

Notice the leather patch that says “Levi Strauss & Company”

The patern from the knee section of this pants is identical with the patern painted on Cucuteni Culture pottery (4000 BC) wich devoloped on the teritory of present day Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. www.google.com/search?q=vase+cucuteni&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=DOe-dmqKyasQsM%253A%252Cvmckq...

Now available exclusively at Old As Hell Navy!!

and here I am staring down the patterns for weaving inspiration <3

My teenager paid $75 for a pair like that

These are selling at The Buckle for $125 right now

Wow China's product quality has really gone down over the years huh?

No way! those pants are nice.

I can't help thinking that for people living what we were once taught was a marginal, hand-to-mouth existence, they had time enough to create intricately patterned fabric for purely ornamental purposes.

Check Armenian traditional clothing & you will know from where it comes.

american eagle gonna be selling knock-offs for $85 next year

You should look in the back of my wardrobe.

Wow. Design looks almost Norse. We all have more in common than we think.

hopefully, the new ones will come without holes.

For sale at Anthropologie now

I would totally buy a copy of these. Very nice fashion.

...now they are making our blue jeans! 🙂

I have a pair just like that from Kensington Antique market...

And the still look good !

The tag in the back reads "made in Bangladesh" lol...

Ha! That's nothing compared to the stuff I've got in my closet and am still wearing. (Oldest are comfortablest)

I bet he was pissed when his wife threw them out.

An anchor found at the oasis of Ein Gedi, dating from between the 8th and 6th centuries B.C., provides the earliest archaeological evidence for sailing on the Dead Sea, which afforded the community access to both transportation and trade routes.

Great place to visit though these days it's full of tourists and hotels. I was there in 1986 and there was just nature and sleeping outside. Amazing place.

Yes, right there on the map above the fortress Jericho is very accurately placed. The walls of Jericho...

J'ai nagé dans la Mer Morte il y a quelques années, et honnêtement, c'est particulier. Il n'y a pas que du chlorure de sodium (notre sel de table, NaCl), mais aussi d'autres composants... La baignade se fait en "cafard crevé", sur le dos, en agitant bras et jambes. Souvenir inoubliable...

There was more extensive sea travel in ancient times than has been acknowledged by historians and archaeologists.

These could be my ancestors or yours or everyone's. Magic that connects us all!

Not barefooted. Could help to identify what type of foot coverings they wore. 👍

I wonder what they were looking for in there so long ago.

Still in better condition than Michigan roads.

Been there...walked those...

And not a single repair was found? Considering that it is Pompeii I would have hoped for at least one in situ repair patch

Melanie Forest

That road looks weird

They can find traces of ancient road repairs yet there are no traces of road repairs on the modern street in front of my house.

Pedestrian crossing!

Iron nails melted by the heat of the ash? Just tossing it out there.

Still in better condition than the roads in New Brunswick

Robbie-Alissa O'Reilly Jesse Smith

Tori Stewart

The grooves in the road are what you notice first hand.

But the stepping stones suggest that the carts were not being pulled by horses or cattle!

Visiting Pompeii was magical.

Es gibt noch so viel zu entdecken was die Menschheit in Staunen versetzen wird

Justin Velluto

Been there.

Wow!!!!

The Romans were masters of cement though. Why would they use molten iron to patch the streets?

It sounds more like melted debris from the pyroclastic flow

That’s quite the dome he’s got there...

Ok, the article says his head was intentionally shaped like that. Otherwise, I was wondering what the forensics team was thinking.

He origns from cetus.

This is real antiquity (terracotta) human history ...study history of the people lived in that land

This dude saw the Ark of the Covenant.

His name is kanzu

Looks like he didn't want to be reconstructed

How unfortunate

What's with that guys dome?

My Lord, This Man Has The Appearance Of Someone, That Is Troubled, In serious Meditation, Sad Countenance.

Bet he was a real ladies man

Don't recognize him. It has been a long time. Poor guy; hope he had a good life.

Looks like if Gandalf and Smeagol had a Benjamin Button syndrome baby...

Joshua's brother MAX

He has a rather large head.

I worked with that guy at Al Packer Ford. Always sleeping in cars

Was he an outer space albino?

Elmer Fudd was old!!!! Dang!!!!!

So obvious it’s just a 👽

dude looks smart look at all that brain packed in that skull.

Approximatif car tout dépend des muscles du visage !!!

Facial features, somewhat, resemble the Asian culture? 🤔

Wait they finally found the Hornet?

Almost like the Titanic tragedy!

Did you find my watch? It’s there somewhere.

Kamikaze

This aircraft carrier help to destroy the Japanese fleet’s offensive capability at Midway June 4, 1942 and was sunk later in battle Oct 1942. The Marines were fighting desperately on Guadalcanal and the Germans were being decimated at Stalingrad. By February 1943 after 4 years at war the tide was turning but it would take more than two years to completely stop the fanatical Germans and the Japanese. It will be just as difficult to destroy and stop our current Islamic fanatical enemies.

Launched the Doolittle raid off the Hornet.

We want a ROV dive on Arisan Maru "Hellship" off the Philippines.

Well, I wouldn't describe that what's shown in the artistic depiction as a careful burial... it's still a pit and they lay there in differing positions, in parts atop of each other, feets over faces with pots thrown in just where they fit in between.. it's definitely not orderly or as orderly as one could bury such a group of people.

You can’t even Imagine going off hunting and coming back to discover all your family murdered after such a hard life

Hmmm rival families warring? Eliminating rival claims to a kingdom?? Very interesting

For those interested in learning more: here you can buy the book about this discovery: www.profil-archeo.pl/koszyce-przemoc-i-rytual-u-schylku-neolitu-2/

This is why I don't attend family reunions.

Jack built it

How are they carefully buried question mark their limbs are everywhere

This article has an image of what the relationships (5 families) were between people buried here. www.livescience.com/65474-neolithic-murder-and-burial.html

In Chase Caucus Bank?

Someone survived.

How do they still have flesh and skin on them after 5,000 years?

They had it coming

May I could have find before. Interesting article📰

The last exhibition of Koszyce grave was in Sandomierz in District Museum zamek-sandomierz.pl/index.php/wydarzenia/165-przemoc-i-rytual-w-neolicie

Blows to the head, but carefully buried with objects.. Sacrificial?

I felt a bit sad for them about this. Especially the infants.

Neolithic mob hit.

Interesting. I would assume sacrifice as well.

Change of upper management...

Whoa! People have been awful to each other since forever, this find shows.

The more things change...

So very amazing ....

Not shocking to me at all!! My sister has a different father!

Milkman jokes, amirite?

Well yes, I'm little surprised. I would've expected different mother's.

Omg, look at their ears!

Bon, allez, je casse le dogme... Celui de gauche me fait penser au lama dans Tintin : "Quand lama fâché, lui toujours faire ainsi"...

Well, at least they had the same type of ears!

One was black and one was white?

📌

I can guess what their mama's ears looked like.

I wonder if they knew?

Sean W Menzies oh boy!
