A cosa serviva un simile genere di costruzione ?

What was above it and how was it discovered ?

I wonder what the acoustics are like in there?!

The ice may have been imported from Fresh Pond, in Boston, MA. 😊

It’s amazing that being in the centre of London & only just been discovered!

They are very efficient! Our community will of Blacks Harbour had one that serviced the whole community!

Was this "ice well" filled with water...beginning of Winter...after freezing, would ice be chopped from top area and sold/given to customers???🤔

Held ton beer 🍺

brilliant...

Wow

Does this qualify for ' Brick of the Day" ? Ian Suddaby ?

Livia Lisi Vega

Found EggBois House!

So would they fill it with water to freeze? Or transport ice to it to hold? Why is it so tall? Very curious!

Interesting!!!!!

they need protected or they will disappear! The rich are looters, everywhere, all the time.

Looks south American

A friend and I bought that at pottery barn a few yrs back as a joke and put it there. I'm super happy that someone finally found it. It retails for 29.95

Looks like a boundary marker.

Stone carvings are very rare in PNG. As this was near the coast may well have been work or at least influenced by Polynesian or Indonesian. Most of the population on New Guinea lived inland, not on or near coast.

Nice

There is also a massive wall built who knows when looks like it came straight out of king kong

Creative

Wow .

This is incredible ... I love it ❤

Analysis of samples taken from the remains of 131 Neolithic pigs unearthed at Durrington Walls, a henge site located about two miles away from Stonehenge, suggests many of the them were brought to Wiltshire some 2,800 years ago from places scattered all over Britain.

If this happpened 2800 years ago in Britain, shouldn`t it be late Bronze age (2100-750 years BC). Or maybe it happened 2800 BC? Then it would have been in the Neolithic era.

Yes. Bacon!

Mmm pork chops 🤤

No restaurant, no refrigerator, bring your own; fresh meat on the hoof (trotter).

Archaeologists have discovered an inscription dating to A.D. 300, which bears the word "Elusa," the Greek name for the ancient Nabatean city of Halutza. The settlement was an important hub on the Incense Route, which linked the Arabian Peninsula and the Mediterranean.

Greeks were everywhere....

Elusa remains a source of many interesting and important finds, similar to the unique 1,500 year-old grape seeds our department at the university of Haifa uncovered a couple of years ago!

Sounds a tad like Hatucha. Just sayin'

Ju Verna. Falamos disso faz tempo...

We often forget that the pyramids were a government public works project. Jobs for thousands. Workers were taxed. The taxes used to build more pyramid sections. The worker bees built cities to live in. Bought stuff. Made stuff. Had families. Went on vacations. Buried friends and family. Retired. Entire economies based on pyramid building.

So far from being poor hungry slaves the pyramid builders were probably extraordinarily wealthy by any ancient standard.

Maybe the Pharaohs weren't jerks like modern leaders

Very interesting.

Oh My Goodness! I Want To Take A Tour Inside!

I heard recently that it would have taken over 200 different farmers to feed the workers at any given time of construction at these camps.

Hasn’t it been known for a few decades that they had a man-made addition to the Nile River to come closer to the pyramids and the town?

The river has moved in the shifting sands...

A pair of thigh-high leather boots were found on the skeleton of a man who died wearing them some 500 years ago near the Thames River in southeast London.

He died looking fabulous.

So they stole his fkn boots

Poor guy must have died coming home after a RenFaire!

Well, nobody wants to go off to their Great Reward looking like a schlub.

The Marquis de Sade?

Thigh high leather boots today.....very expensive. He was well shod anyway. Interesting to find out the history.

He never came home that night.....

Died with his boots on. :)

#highfashion

Really?

Sooo, the poor guy got stuck in the mud and drowned?

Waders.

Kinky boots

Gear Patrol, circa 1519? 👢

According to The Frankenstein Chronicles, the mud in some parts of the Thames was so quicksand textured that one could literally be sucked under. Having watched Mud Men, about modern day mudlarks, I can believe it. Maybe Mr. Boots made a misstep or maybe he was tossed in by oh, say, Christopher Marlowe on a spy mission?

London has a lot of rivers I believe.nowadays a lot are underground.

Facinating. I don’t understand why some people think their comments are funny or enjoyed by others. Wish there was a way for Facebook to block such.

Just how tall is this'man', looks very, very tiny to me?

Kinky.

Léa, pté c'est vraiment trop dommage qu'on l'ai pas vue :'(

Ah those old church’s really knew how to scare the hell out of you 😜

Been there... it's amazing.

I would love to become an art piece like this when I die!! How awesome! So much better than moldering away in a casket somewhere inconsequential.

Just here two days ago.

Il y a la même chose au Portugal, une petite chapelle est faite d'ossements de gens morts dans l'incendie de cette chapelle.

Somebody had way too much free time . . .

That’s very bizarre and macabre. Not my cup of tea.

Too bad popsicle sticks had not been invented yet...would have saved a lot of lives!

I don't consider this ignorant work any respect for the dead!

I have been there and I remember reading that they were plague victims if I’m not mistaken.

Kind of cool in Conan the Barbarian sorta way

Very creepy!!!

Part of me says wow, interesting and another part of me is repulsed!!

Wonder if they make souvenir belt buckles of this?

Very cool beans! I love bones! P S did I ever mention I have relatives at Mt Mercy?

Oh my God skeletal Art!!The human being is really a god with no google and only imagination to create such things.

wonder if they will dna test on the way through...

No “ Rest In Peace “ in the Czech Republic!

How Far Away Is This From Prague? :)

If it ain't broke don't fix it!!

When I first saw this I thought it was the bone organ from the goonies!

I would like to see Behemoth there on mushrooms. 🍄🤔♑

They really had phantasy...

been there, awesome place!

From the Archives: Researchers are racing to determine why some of the world’s oldest mummies, which were discovered in the sands of Chile's Atacama Desert and date to as early 5,000 B.C., have been deteriorating in climate-controlled museum conditions.

It's a curse.

A very sad picture

Maybe what scientists think is "controlled" isn't the same controlled environment the remains have been in for thousands of years?

Wild guess: something isn't as "controlled" as they thought.

The first 7000 years is always the hardest on things. After this it should be smooth sailing.

Simple. 'Climate Control' does not simulate the environment the mummified remains were found in.

Just a thought, but I remember reading something about a bacteria that glowed and was responsible for the assisting of healing wounded soldiers during (I think) the civil war. Is it at all possible that there was a bacteria or something in the location that aided in the preservation of the mummies?

It's a shame, the State don't give money for this kind of science, i'm chilean and i see things like this, and museums don´t offered the climate-controlled conditions, many mommys are in shoeboxes...

I'm not amused

I would say they don't have the controls right.. yet...

Maybe not human.

Light fixtures?

Try chemistry, physics and micro/macrobiolgy

I wonder if they're ionizing the area. . .seems like that would be common sense though.

wrong climate

Maybe they should have let them rest in peace where they were. I know we enjoy learning from the past but......well I do enjoy this site.....I do not mean to be a hypocrite

Embalming fluid bath might stop decay?

old from 2015... any news ?

oxygen maybe?..everything decays eventually

Not that old.

If these genius researchers were to encapsulate the mummies in a nitrogen environment, the deterioration would cease.

Not surprised.

https://www.archaeology.org/issues/188-1509/trenches/3575-trenches-chile-atacama-mummies-decaying

Maybe the controlled environment is too sterile and the natural environment where they originated has microorganisms that actually help to preserve the mummies rather than decompose the mummies. Just a thought.

Maybe these mummies should have been left where they were? They’ve been in a sterile, dark, environment for the past few thousand years and not exposed to light, and what the scientists called “controlled” environment. Maybe we should just leave things alone for a change and stop meddling with nature! 😡🤷‍♀️

The Greeks and Romans considered a red pigment called miltos to be a sort of multipurpose supersubstance. Now, a team of researchers has discovered some of its secrets.

At least 17 of the bodies buried in a Roman cemetery in Suffolk, England, were decapitated, with their skulls placed at their feet or tucked between the legs of their otherwise intact skeletons.

There were known cases of people "waking up" after burial back in those days. If I lived back in that time, I would have requested decapitation before burial for that reason.

It is just a possible that these were viscous after death mutilations were a message by a rival warrior or politician as an insult to the family

Their heads were removed after death. It was not an execution. (According to the written article.)

😕

Why?

Vampires

They were considered traitors.

Where are his/her hands?

Maybe they had a tornado drill and didn't survive

Well he may have lost his head...willingly or not, however, he is... hanging on to his neither parts... I always heard that "sex and religion are the last to go and sex is the last".... unknown...

More like executions....

humans

Im glad i live now an have a little common sense!!!!!!

Hung & drawn, the qauretering must be a later development?

Deforestation and poaching not only threaten the survival of chimpanzee populations, but the transmission of their culture and adaptations to the local environment as well, according to a new report.

7.1 BILLION humans on the Earth, making it a hazard to all the other life forms on the planet.

It is heartbreaking what is happening to all of nature because of human greed.

I hate chimps.

Mankind WILL destroy mankind!!!!!!, too .

The U.N. was running stories about deforestation in Rwanda during the genocide. The government was forcing people to live in forests that had flies that caused " sleeping sickness " and they died. So, to survive, they cut down the native forest and planted ecualptise. The U.N. is involved in mass atrocities. Mass killings. I've seen it with my own eyes.

I don’t believe this is archeology, I guess they are trying to become political to make money.

are we human more intelligent or more stupid ?

This site should be marked as a war grave and the artifacts preserved and displayed as a warning

Un autre charnier....

It was a horrible time that we must not forget...

For our generation, it's history. Not yet archeology .😭

Yeah, they tried their best to hide the evidence by digging up the bodies before the allies discovered their crimes.

How awful ! My father was a WW2 POW with many wonderful Polish whom he befriended in central Germany and I have photographs of many of them. Fortunately he survived from a stalag camp outside Leipzig. But his life was shortened because of the years there. I wonder where exactly this Langenback Valley with a forest is located ?

Hope it's never repeated.

🍃🍂 RIP 🍂🍃

Among the many lessons we should Never Forget.

Yay found ❤️ it's good to be found when you've been disposed of this way.

Do we really want to go digging that up Right now. I mean.. That cant be done 100 yeas from now. We all know what happen. Build a memorial.

A truly hallowed burial site !!!

How horrible!!!!!!!

💦

Interesting

How do we find out the names of the 14 victims who have been identified?

The Germans also dug up Polish officers murdered by the Soviet’s.
