The Ruthless, Fruitless Pursuit Of Immortality

In Neolithic times, we entombed food alongside corpses so they'd have something to snack on in the spirit realm.
Kasey Saeturn's insight:

This article talks about how in Neolithic times, when people were buried they would bury them with food and things like that believing that they would be able to take those things with them in the next realm that they would end up. Kind of like a life after death.

Kasey Saeturn's insight:

Wow. This is the first that I've seen of an article or ad that talks about interpretating neolithic homes. Who would've thought that there were neolithic homes that existed today that could be visited and toured. Sounds like a very historical journey to be on if you were to take a tour of neolithic homes. Dating back to so many centuries.

Kasey Saeturn's insight:

Being able to find settlements of earlier life must be an exciting thing to do. I'd be shock to find that the house that I'm currently living at was a settlement site for earlier life. But who actually knows what the earlier life was when you yourself decided to settle.

They used to use actual rocks as knives like this one in the picture and nowadays we've grown to create more modernized knives that does not necessarily take as much effort to make or use a rock knife would've.
