A MAMMOTH AND HUMANS ON THE BANKS OF THE MARNE

This mammoth is probably a Mammuthus primigenius, a wooly mammoth with long tusks that were used to expose edible vegetation under the snow. These animals could attain 2.8 to 3.4 meters high at their withers and were covered with fur and a thick layer of fat. They usually lived in grassy steppe environments.

Trojan treasure still waiting to come home

Trojan treasure still waiting to come home | Archaeology and the Bronze Age | Scoop.it
A number of the many Trojan artifacts carried out of Turkey illegally many years ago have recently made their way home as a result of the efforts of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

 

At the same time, though, the vast majority of Troy’s treasure still remains outside of Turkey. In fact, items taken out of Turkey in the 19th century by German archeologist Heinrich Schliemann are scattered among 47 collections around the world, though many have been located in Russia.

ARCHAEOLOGY - Hittites ahead of their time in dam building

ARCHAEOLOGY - Hittites ahead of their time in dam building | Archaeology and the Bronze Age | Scoop.it
The discovery of a Hittite dam constructed more than three millennia ago at the ancient site of Alacahöyük in northern Anatolia suggests that little has changed in the past 3,000 years in terms of building barrages

 

A dam unearthed during excavation work in the northern Anatolian province of Çorum reveals that the dam construction techniques of the ancient past are similar to the techniques used today, according to archaeologists.

Archeological treasure under threat

Archeological treasure under threat | Archaeology and the Bronze Age | Scoop.it

The Kumi Dome in the Darb El Ahmar area in Old Cairo is one of Cairo’s archaeological treasures. Built in the 10th century in the Circassian Mamluk era, the dome is listed on the official map of the Ministry of Antiquities as antiquity number 256.

 

For a long time a protective fence ensured that the monument could be admired by anyone passing by yet would be protected from harm.

 

Recently the fence came down and instead of preserving the past, the area around the dome has turned into a place where garbage is dumped and unwanted possessions are discarded.
