It is believed that the dogs were buried with their Masters as part of a ritual burial ceremony. The Parque de las Leyendas is located amidst a big part of Lima’s most extensive ancient city and is one of the most important pre-Hispanic complexes at the central Peruvian coast called the Archaeological Complex of Maranga. Archaeologists were excavating a section of the archaeological complex when they made the surprising discovery. Sixty-two complete dog skeletons were found along with seventy-five incomplete remains. All the dog remains were found in resting positions alongside humans. It is not the first time that ancient dog remains have been found in Peru.

Share Shares It has been reported that the world-renowned and highly trusted Smithsonian Institution was allegedly accused in a lawsuit of covering up the existence of giant humans in our past. Some supposedly had six fingers and elongated heads and carried giant weapons. Indeed, a surprising number of reports of giant skeletons do exist in old newspapers. All the same, you might want to take these claims with a bag of salt.
Ancient Mayan remains thought to be up to 7, years old have been discovered by archaeologists in Mexico. Three skeletons were found in the Puyil cave, in the Tacotalpa municipality of Tabasco.
Police have yet to solve the case. But the good news? The looters didn’t take everything. Some bits of bone were preserved under stalagmites, mineral growths shaped like upside-down icicles on the cave floor. By analyzing what’s left of this ice age grave site , researchers determined that the skeleton could be up to 13, years old, making it “one of the oldest human skeletons from America,” study author Wolfgang Stinnesbeck, an earth scientist at Heidelberg University in Germany, said in a statement.
Stinnesbeck and his colleagues first became aware of the skeleton in a submerged cave called Chan Hol in February from photos on social media. Unfortunately, 90 percent of the skeleton was looted a month later.

The skeleton of a teenage girl was found in Hoyo Negro, a deeply submerged chamber in the Sac Actun cave system in the eastern Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. Alberto Nava Blank and a team of science divers discovered the skeleton along with many extinct animal remains deep inside this inundated cave in
Read the article on one page The Dropa stones are said to be a set of circular stone disks dating back 12, years on which tiny hieroglyphic-like markings can be found. Each disc is said to measure up to 1 foot in diameter and carry two grooves, originating from a hole in their centre, in the form of a double spiral. The discovery of the mysterious discs apparently took place in in the mountains of Baian Kara-Ula on the border between China and Tibet, where a Chinese professor, Chi Pu Tei, detected regularly aligned rows of graves.
The skeletons measured only around four feet in height and had skulls which were large and over developed. Inside a nearby cave system, Chi Pu Tei and his team found interesting rock art which depicted figures with round helmets. Engraved in the rock were also the sun, moon, earth and stars, connected by groups of pea-sized dots. Further inside the cave, the team found the collection of stone discs, most of them half buried in the floor of the cave. Tsum Um Nui For the next two decades, it is believed that the discs were labelled and stored at Beijing University before being given to Tsum Um Nui for study in

The most coveted type of antique key is the historic, ornate, skeleton key. Background It is generally agreed that the key and lock were invented in ancient Egypt and China simultaneously, in around BC. These ancient keys and locks were usually made from either wood or iron. Keys and locks really took hold during the Roman Empire, however, as geographical conquest brought great riches, which then needed to be protected against theft.
) describe a skeleton with a Paleoamerican phenotype from the eastern Yucatan, dating to approximately 12 to 13 thousand years ago, with a relatively common extant Native American mitochondrial DNA haplotype. The Paleoamerican phenotype may thus have evolved independently among Native American populations.
June 18, , European Society of Human Genetics Interest in the origins of human populations and their migration routes has increased greatly in recent years. A critical aspect of tracing migration events is dating them. However, radiocarbon techniques commonly used to date and analyse DNA from ancient skeletons can be inaccurate and difficult to apply. Inspired by the Geographic Population Structure model that can track mutations associated with geography, researchers have developed a new analytic method, the Time Population Structure TPS , that uses mutations to predict time in order to date the ancient DNA.
Umberto Esposito, a postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Dr. At this point, TPS has already shown that its results are very similar to those obtained with traditional radiocarbon dating. We found that the average difference between our age predictions on samples that existed up to 45, years ago, and those given by radiocarbon dating, was years. This study adds a powerful instrument to the growing toolkit of paleogeneticists that can contribute to our understanding of ancient cultures, most of which are currently known from archaeology and ancient literature,” says Dr.
Radiocarbon technology requires certain levels of radiocarbon on the skeleton, and this is not always available. In addition, it is a delicate procedure that can yield very different dates if done incorrectly. The new technique provides results similar to those obtained by radiocarbon dating, but using a completely new DNA-based approach that can complement radiocarbon dating or be used when radiocarbon dating is unreliable. The study of genetic data allows us to uncover long-lasting questions about migrations and population mixing in the past.
In this context, dating ancient skeletons is of key importance for obtaining reliable and accurate results, ” says Dr.

Men’s Skeletons in the Closet? In the heady early days of your relationship, you shared lots of little intimacies: But as your conversations grow deeper, perhaps you’ve learned about a few more worrisome details:
In total, 10 skeletons were investigated. These included seven early medieval graves, dating to between the fifth and eighth centuries—four from Oakington and three from Hinxton—and three earlier Iron Age graves from Cambridgeshire, dating to between the second century B.C. and the first century, to provide the genome of the antecedent.
Cro-Magnon France 27, , Note: Artifactual evidence indicates that modern humans were in Europe by at least 40, and possibly as early as 46, years ago. Dating of the earliest modern human fossils in Asia is less secure, but it is likely that they were present there by at least 60, years ago and possibly , years ago.
It would seem from these dates that the location of initial modern Homo sapiens evolution and the direction of their dispersion from that area is obvious. That is not the case. Since the early ‘s, there have been two leading contradictory models that attempt to explain modern human evolution–the replacement model and the regional continuity model.

The various dating techniques available to archaeologists by Michael G. Furthermore, when you consider that many archaeological sites will contain numerous types of artifacts that permit the use of multiple dating methodologies, a modern archaeologist can often employ cross-dating methodologies which can allow for extremely accurate dating as far back as 10, years in some regions.
Natural Dating Techniques A modern archaeologist has almost half a dozen natural dating techniques that she can apply in the field that she can use to quickly determine an approximate date range, which, in the cases of varve analysis and dendrochronology, can often be used to decrease the date range estimate to a matter of just a few years.
A skeleton named Little Foot is among the oldest hominid skeletons ever dated at million years old, according to an advanced dating method. Little Foot is a rare, nearly complete skeleton of.
Graham Boyd, chief executive officer of Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust, which operates the Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, said he was inspired after speaking to members of the Greek Orthodox community, which had a long tradition of using ossuaries. Advertisement “Some families will embrace it and others won’t. Community groups that already have exposure to this, like those in Greece, they are already familiar with the concept and for them the bridge to this new stage of thinking is not a long one.
Mr Boyd is the chief executive of one of Australia’s largest Crown cemetery trusts, which contain around , burial plots and host burials a year, making up 20 per cent of all burials in Sydney. Burial space is already at a premium.

As with anything antique, the value of a skeleton key is determined by collector interest, rarity, age and beauty. Value Skeleton key values, while on the rise, are still low enough to allow even a casual collector into the game. But as interest in keys increases, fewer will be on the market, and prices are expected to rise.

Archaeologists knew a graveyard dating back to the Middle Ages was originally on the site, but have been surprised by the extent of the findings, Southwark Council said.
About bodies were exhumed in the s for roadworks. Archaeologist Chris Constable said a range of burial types have been found from stacked graves where the poor were buried in stacked coffins, to 25 crypts for use by wealthy families. Dr Constable said the excavation could provide an insight into the impact industrialisation had on people’s lives. Peter John, leader of Southwark Council, said:

Has the Smithsonian really admitted to destroying giant skeletons? Many photos of what appear to be people next to giant skeletons in the ground have surfaced on the Internet, but most of these have been proved to be digitally manipulated. The rumours that the Smithsonian have admitted to covering up and destroying these skeletons as per a US Supreme Court ruling seem to originate from an article of World News Daily Report.
Lucy is arguably the most famous of all early human individuals due to her age and relative completeness. Partial skeletons like hers allow us to learn much more about early human body size, shape, and locomotion than more fragmentary and sparse remains.
July 6, , These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. Video Screenshot Archaeologists have discovered a collection of 5, year old graves in China that contain remarkably tall skeletons, a description strongly reminiscent of the Biblical Nephilim who are believed to also play a significant role in the Final Battle on Mount Zion at the End of Days.
Throughout Eastern China in the Jiaojia village, archaeologists have been excavating the ruins of houses, graves, and sacrificial pits, unearthing more than graves. The evidence of their discovery leads the experts to believe that the males in the village averaged a height of six feet, three inches. Skeleton remains discovered in China point to resemblances with the Biblical Nephilim.
