The Intriguing Ancient Underground City of Derinkuyu

The Intriguing Ancient Underground City of Derinkuyu | historian: people and cultures | Scoop.it

Long ago, in the region surrounding Nevsehir and Kayseri, in central Turkey, an ancient people built, or rather dug, over 200 underground cities. The deepest of these, under the present day town of Derinkuyu, delves over 250 feet below the Earth’s surface, and boasts numerous tunnels, halls, meeting rooms, wells and passages.

Because the city was carved from existing caves and underground structures that had first formed naturally, there is no way to discern, with traditional archaeological methods of dating, when exactly Derinkuyu was built. As such, and with ties to the Hittites, Phrygians and Persians, Derinkuyu presents a fascinating riddle for ancient mystery enthusiasts.

JERRY KITH's curator insight, January 15, 12:13 PM

What baffles me is many ancient civilizations lack the resources (pneumatic tools, electric drills, bull-dozers, etc) to create such a magnicificant underground cities. Or perhaps, they did have access to modern-like tools. We have an assumption that they don't, but until the day we find concrete evidence, the question still remains a mystery in my mind.

The blog author's comment is insightful and well-taken. While in the midst of a revolution, nostalgic photographs of a prosperous past provide psychological landmarks from which to modern Egyptians can derive inspiration to assist with building a new the future. I would emphasize that the very distant past of ancient Egypt also offers historical wisdom that from which much can be learned.

We can learn a great deal from the skeltons, we can learn about what people ate (what was available locally and if food stuffs were traded), and we can also see different diseases and injuries. From the location of the bodies we will have a more accurate vision of where the city boundaries were located.

Maps are much more than just directions to a place.  From ancient maps we can see what areas were controlled or had power in an area, the location of important landmarks, and which places were considered more valuable.  Maps provide an interesting view into the beliefs of people in the past.

Hallan en Baelo un conjunto termal marítimo y una zona urbana externa

Hallan en Baelo un conjunto termal marítimo y una zona urbana externa | historian: people and cultures | Scoop.it

El conjunto arqueológico de Baelo Claudia, en Bolonia (Tarifa), está más vivo que nunca. Unas termas marítimas de mayor dimensión que las ya conocidas, ubicadas a su vez en un suburbium -aglomeración urbana anexa a la ciudad- hasta ahora desconocida; una escultura -ya anunciada- que ahora consideran que se trata de una copia del Doríforo de Policleto; un previsible cuarto acueducto de abastecimiento y hasta la constatación de que la ciudad fue víctima de dos terremotos, fueron la lista de hallazgos que ayer hizo públicos la delegación territorial de Cultura. 

La perseverancia unida al esfuerzo de los trabajos de investigación sobre el terreno han permitido resurgir estructuras así como interpretar mejor la forma de vida en la época romana en esta localización de la provincia. El trabajo lo lidera el profesor titular de Arqueología de la Universidad de Cádiz (UCA) y director de la excavación, Darío Bernal, en el marco de un proyecto general de investigación que desarrolla la UCA, autorizado por la consejería de Educación y Cultura de la Junta en colaboración con los técnicos de Baelo Claudia, dirigido por Ángel Muñoz. en la zona industrial de la ciudad. 

El objetivo era determinar la funcionalidad de algunos edificios y se aplicaron técnicas novedosas de la arqueología internacional, como las prospecciones geofísicas -con una empresa alemana- para tratar de saber qué hay en el subsuelo sin necesidad de excavar. El proyecto ha dado grandes resultados para el conocimiento de Baelo y de la arquitectura romana en Andalucía. "Hay piezas que tienen una singularidad que sobrepasa la importancia de la propia ciudad de Tarifa o incluso de Andalucía, son piezas de las más importantes que han aparecido en la España romana", contextualizó Bernal.

"Neandertales: Los últimos homínidos de Europa" de Antonio Monclova Bohórquez

"Neandertales: Los últimos homínidos de Europa" de Antonio Monclova Bohórquez | historian: people and cultures | Scoop.it

Neandertales: Los últimos homínidos de Europa del doctor en Prehistoria y Paleontología Antonio Monclova Bohórquez es la nueva publicación de la editorial Almuzara enmarcada dentro de la colección Huellas del pasado.  

En este prolijo trabajo de investigación el autor aporta una posible explicación de la desaparición de estos seres y mantiene la tesis de que los Neandertales, al igual que ciertos mamíferos del pleistoceno superior europeo, estaban sentenciados a su extinción varios milenios antes de su ocaso.  

Un hecho, hasta la fecha ignorado, que este investigador pone en negro sobre blanco al afirmar que "el análisis de la forma en cómo varió conjuntamente la distribución de los Neandertales y las especies de mamíferos con los que convivieron, demuestran que acontecieron una serie de cambios climáticos a finales del Pleistoceno europeo. Un factor que pudo causar que se extinguiesen las últimas poblaciones de estos homínidos, reubicados en refugios situados al sur de Europa, al no poder recolonizar sus antiguos territorios continentales".
