Bronze Age Yamna culture may have introduced cannabis to Europe and Asia 5,000 years ago

A cannabis trade may have been established in Europe and Asia as far back as 5,000 years ago by a group of steppe nomads known as the Yamna, scientists have said. They have worked to retrace the introduction of hemp on the continent - a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species. The study, published in the journal Vegetation History and Archeobotany, presents a systematic review of archaeological and palaeo-environmental records of cannabis fibres, pollen and achene across Europe and East Asia. The research team, from the Free University of Berlin, reconstructed ancient cannabis records and investigated how exchange and migration routes established by the Bronze Age Yamna people may have contributed

'Extinct' volcano near Rome rumbles to life

'Extinct' volcano near Rome rumbles to life | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
A volcano outside Rome, long thought extinct, is rumbling to life. But don't panic: The volcano isn't likely to blow its top for at least another 1,000 years. Colli Albani is a volcanic complex of hills located 19 miles (30 kilometers) from the center of Rome. There are no historical records of eruptions from Colli Albani, so it was long thought to be extinct, according to the American Geophysical Union (AGU). Now, researchers have reported in the journal Geophysical Research Letters that Colli Albani just doesn't erupt that often. In fact, it enters an eruptive phase every 31,000 years or so. A team of researchers, led by volcanologist Fabrizio Marra of the National Institute of Geophysics and
