New research published in The American Journal of Physical Anthropology explores archaeological evidence from Peru, dating to the Late Horizon era between 1450 and 1532 A.D.,  to tell us more about the individuals who met their fate.

Çatalhöyük: Shrine of the Hunters

The 'Shrine of the Hunters' is an archaeological reconstruction of a level 5 house from Çatalhöyük. It was originally excavated in the 1960's by James Mellaart and aside from a few informational illustrations, has had surprisingly little coverage.

 

One of the most decorated houses ever found at the site, this piece began as the focus of a MSc Dissertation by Grant Cox during the Virtual Pasts course at the University of Southampton and has since evolved into an animation.

Lessons for Today From 5 Ancient Civilizations

Lessons for Today From 5 Ancient Civilizations | ancient civilization | Scoop.it

This April, National Geographic explorers and other experts in five of the world's oldest civilizations will gather in Guatemala to discuss how the past can be a window to the future.

At least five distinct times in world history, human beings created a unique writing system that allowed them to organize their thoughts and record and transmit information like never before: the Egyptians, Mesopotamians, Chinese, People of the Indus Valley, and the Maya. They each spread to inspire more written systems (for example the Latin alphabet we use comes from Phonecian, which stems ultimately from Egyptian).

I thought this article was intriguing because our blog for this week was to compare ancient civilization to modern day civilization.  I am awe stricken that even in ancient times, human beings created a unique writing system.  It is crazy to think that the tradition of writing has been passed down from generation to generation for years.

Bit of a mixed feeling about this one.   but fascinating insight into the dark mind of the Aztec Priest.   Did they really believe this was needed?   

Janelix Lourido's comment, March 5, 2013 8:49 PM
Los sacrificios humanos fueron muy practicados por la mayoría sino por todas las civilizaciones pre colombinas ya que por medio de estos se mantenían en contacto con sus deidades y estas contentas con sus ofrendas le retribuían en cosechas abundantes, evitando sequías y otros fenómenos naturales.

Transition to farming simultaneous across most of Fertile Crescent

Transition to farming simultaneous across most of Fertile Crescent | ancient civilization | Scoop.it

A rich assemblage of fossils and artefacts in the foothills of the Zagros Mountains in Iran has revealed that the early inhabitants of the region began cultivating cereal grains for agriculture between 12,000 and 9,800 years ago.

The discovery implies that the transition from foraging to farming took place at roughly the same time across the entire Fertile Crescent, not in a single core area of the “cradle of civilization,” as previously thought.

Until recently, political pressures had limited excavations of archaeological sites in the eastern Fertile Crescent, or modern-day Iran, while findings to the west—at sites in Cyprus, Syria, Turkey and Iraq, for example—provided detailed clues to the origins of agriculture.
