Extensive Ancient Underground Network Discovered From Scotland to Turkey

Extensive Ancient Underground Network Discovered From Scotland to Turkey | INTERNATIONAL VIEW | Scoop.it

Archaeologists uncovered thousands of Stone Age underground tunnels, stretching across Europe from Scotland to Turkey, perplexing researchers as to their original purpose.

 

German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch, in his book ‘Secrets of the Underground Door to an Ancient World’ revealed that tunnels were dug under literally hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over Europe and the fact that so many tunnels have survived 12,000 years indicates that the original network must have been huge.

 

While many believe Stone Age humans were primitive, incredible discoveries such as the 12,000 year-old temple called Gobekli Tepe in  Turkey,  the pyramids of Egypt and other structures such as Stonehenge, which demonstrate extremely advanced astronomical knowledge indicates that they were not as primitive as many believe.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, April 12, 2015 10:01 AM

Just another indication that our story of the history of humanity is full of holes. 

The fact that there were extensive tunnel systems and megalithic constructions dating back more than ten thousand years indicates that there must have been advanced civilisations before this one.

Welcoming Immigrants: Why Empathy Is Smart Economics For Cities

Welcoming Immigrants: Why Empathy Is Smart Economics For Cities | INTERNATIONAL VIEW | Scoop.it
Why should a local government care about welcoming immigrants and becoming an actively empathetic institution?

 

Creating an environment that is friendly toward immigrants is both a matter of human decency and smart economics.  A welcoming city is more likely to thrive, thus illustrating the “empathy imperative”—the critical importance of empathy within communities today. A person who is welcoming to another resident shows active empathy—the kind that involves concrete steps on behalf of the “welcomer” to help make the resident’s journey smoother.

 

In this way, the empathy imperative is a powerful economic driver that also makes a city a more vibrant, inclusive, and pleasant place to live.
