A corpse that appeared to be mummified between 3500 and 3700 BC shows that the mummification formula was also developed much earlier than anticipated and was used in a wider geographical area. The essence of the balsam consists of: – a plant oil, possibly a sesame seed, a “balsamaceous” plant or root extract, possibly a bean sprout, a natural sugar taken from the ground, possibly from acacia, glue, a coniferous tree with a critical prescription, .

9- Ancient Human Species Found a Hybrid for the First Time

Until 40,000 years ago, at least two groups lived in Eurasia: the Neandertals in the west and the Denisovals in the east. Now, the researchers discovered that the genome of an individual in Siberia was sequenced, and that his mother was a Neanderthal, and his father was a Denisovian.

The Denisovals, together with the Neanderthals, are the nearest extinct relatives of modern people living here. Viviane Slon, one of the three authors of the study, said, “From previous research we knew that the Neanderthals and the Denisovals should have a child occasionally. But I never thought we’d be lucky enough to find a hybrid of these two. “

8- Direct Evidence Towards Bird in Mesopotamia Was Found

Archaeologists, mostly from writings and drawings, knew that one was important in the ancient world, but finding real archaeological evidence of this fermentation was always a big problem.

Beer drinking vessels brought to the surface during excavations in Khani Masi carry some of the earliest chemical evidence of the presence of birds. In order to prevent containers from contaminating with modern compounds, researchers had to take extra precautions. C: Sirwan Regional Project

Archaeologists are now using a new method to detect beer remains in clay vessels of about 2,500 years old, excavated from an excavation site north of Iraq. Claudia Glatz, co-author of the study, said: “The traces of fermentation in the cups of Elsa Perruchini, which show chemical traces that match those found in the same time. When we put them together, we understand that there are barley beans in the containers. “

7- 40,000-year-old frozen thai found in Yakutistan

Scientists found a 40,000-year-old frozen tundra on the Batagai crater in Yakutia.

Researchers say that the frozen soil in Batagai depression is keeping the fish in perfect condition. The corpse was not damaged at all. Even the jelly stood, and this situation is quite rare for such an old corpse. Scientists estimate that he’s at least two months old when he’s dead, and he says his shoulder is 98 cm long.

6- Today’s Piggies Do not Relate to Hobbits Lived in the Same Island

Today, Pigmeler, who lives in Flores in Indonesia, did not share common genes with “hobbitler” who lived there tens of thousands of years ago.

Since the discovery of the “Hobbits”, a small-sized human species found in Flores in Indonesia, researchers are wondering if these ancient people are related to the Pigles living in the island today. A recent survey answered this question: No. The Pigmeler living in the island today is not related to ancient hobbits (scientific name Homo floresiensis).

5- How Çatalhöyük People Adapted to the Drought

The researchers showed evidence of how the farmers at Çatalhöyük had adapted to climate change 8,200 years ago.

A little more than 8000 years ago, the world suddenly cooled down, causing more dry summers to occur in much of the Northern Hemisphere. The impact on the early farmers in this region had to be extreme, but archaeologists knew very little about how people were based on it. Now the remains of animal fats on broken pots at Çatalhöyük, one of the oldest and most extraordinary pre-cities of the world, offer new insights into how these ancient peoples survived disaster.

4- Laziness in the Destruction of Homo Erectus Role

New archaeological research revealed that Homo erectus, a primitive human species extinct, was partially “lazy” and disappeared.

Archaeological excavations on ancient human communities in the Arabian Peninsula during the first Paleolithic period revealed that Homo erectus used “least effort strategies” to build tools and collect resources. According to the research head writer Dr Ceri Shipton, this ‘laziness’ was consistent with the possibility that the altered clime probably could not adapt to the extinct species.

3- Pliny, the elderly who died in Pompeii, was right about the Balinar

It turns out that Old Pliny, who died while abducting people from the volcanic eruption in Pompeii, was right about the existence of killer whales in the Strait of Gibraltar.

The researchers are questioning the writings of a senior, who lived in Pompeii and said that Pliny, the elder, said he was the killer whale in the Gibraltar Strait. It was not known that these marine mammals visited the area. Now a survey reveals that Old Pliny was right. Researchers have discovered bones of the glacier (Eubalaena glacialis) and the gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) in the remains of an ancient Roman fish processing facility located near the Strait of Gibraltar.

2- The oldest cheese known in Ancient Egyptian Cemetery was found

It is believed that the 3,200-year-old cheese discovered in the ancient Egyptian grave is the oldest solid cheese to date.

Often the flavor of the cheese increases with aging, but this is not the noteworthy aspect of the cheese discovered in the Ancient Egyptian grave. It is thought that the cheese discovered in the ancient Egyptian grave is the oldest solid cheese until now.

1- Mysterious Decorations Discovered in the Bones of 4,500 Year Old Women

It was discovered that the bones of a young woman buried in the midst of the Dynasty, situated in Ukraine today 4,500 years ago, were filled with unique ornaments. According to scientists, these signs were made after death and the decay of the body.

A few years ago, the team studied a series of tumuli. One of the mounds had a young female skeleton aged 25-30 years. Danuta Zurkiewicz, “When making burial drawings and photographs, we were drawn to ordinary patterns, such as parallel lines, which are noticeable in both elbow bells. At first we thought that the discovery was close to suspicious, the traces may have been created by animals. “
