Andreina Ruiz's insight:

Archaeologists found new evidence from Phoenician burial sites. It is suggested that Phoenicians and their Carthaginian successors performed rituals of child sacrifice. It is unbelievable how an archaeologist named Van Dommelen referred to the sacrifices as a “contract” with the gods to be offered in times of distress in exchange for good fortune. But the exact nature of the rituals remains a mystery. This is so sad how children were treated like this in a very young age.

So the Phoenicians and their Carthaginian successors were discovered to have been doing child sacrifices. They found this out through studying a burial site. This story filled my heart with sorrow more than anything. Very sad.

Aside from stone structures archeologists also found carved jade and what seems to be the first mural of this period in china.

Via mrspaxtonsmith
Andreina Ruiz's insight:

Mohenjodaro is a 5,000 year-old city in Pakistan. It is under threat from extreme temperatures and monsoon rains, which leave deposits of salt on the unbaked clay bricks that were used to create its buildings. That salt leeches out any moisture in the bricks and slowly turns them to dust. The city really seems to disappear from the results.

Things You Need To Know About Egypt Culture

Things You Need To Know About Egypt Culture | Ancient Phoenician | Scoop.it

Egypt is a fabulous country and is one of the most visited holiday destinations in the world. You may explore the whole of the world, but if you haven’t visited Egypt, then you cannot call yourself a true backpacker. The beauty of the pyramids and other historical buildings of this country are simply intriguing. There is a sense of getting goose bumps when you stand before the might of Giza’s Great Pyramid or when you try to look for the nose of the Great Sphinx! However, though traveling to this country is easy and cost-effective, you need to conduct yourself in accordance with the local Egypt culture. .


Via Egypt Travel Experts
Andreina Ruiz's insight:

Egypt is one of the most visited country in the world. The popular sites are the Pyramids of Giza, Abu Simbel or the west bank of Luxor and few others. I have not traveled to Egypt, but it is one of the countries listed for me to visit soon. I was actually not aware about Egypt Culture restrictions in how you should not show any love affection to your partner in public and for a woman not to show a lot of skin.

Paranormal Locations: Africa's Stonehenge

Paranormal Locations: Africa's Stonehenge | Ancient Phoenician | Scoop.it

The mysteries of Stonehenge have puzzled scientists and mystics for hundreds of years, but many paranormal fanatics and archaeology enthusiasts are not aware that there is a similar circular stone structure in Africa that is two-thousand years older.

 

Nabta Playa is located in part of the Nubian Desert in what is now Southern Egypt. The ancient people of this area were drawn here as the Nabta Playa basin formed a lake during the rainy seasons.

 

Archaeological findings reveal that the people living in this area seemed to be better organized and more advanced than other nearby peoples of the time, leading some to believe that they were aided by alien allies.

 

Animal sacrifices performed at the location reveal a practicing cattle cult that closely resembles the worship of Hathor, the cow goddess of The Old Kingdom; suggesting Nubia’s religious influence on ancient Egyptian religion.
