wish it gave more information without me having to click it but its interesting
Joel Mondragon's curator insight, November 2, 2013 1:03 AM

This article was very interesting, because it describes an archeological discovery from ancient Neolithic China. The site was significant because it contained intact artifacts including houses from that time period. Various types of pottery and ceramics were also found with distinctive patterns.

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. 

Joel Mondragon's curator insight, October 25, 2013 10:43 PM

This article talks about possible Neolithic villages in ancient India. There reasons for this is the discovery of various potholes and pillars that suggest a Neolithic village. Another surprising fact was that there was engravings on the pillars found.

Stone Pages Archaeo News: Police return smuggled Neolithic artefacts to Kosovo

Stone Pages Archaeo News: Police return smuggled Neolithic artefacts to Kosovo | Neolithic Era | Scoop.it

Seven artefacts dating as far back as 4,000 BCE to the Neolithic period, and thought to belong to the Vinca, a prehistoric culture that traces back to 5,500 BCE in southern Europe, have been returned to Kosovo. They are believed to have been stolen during the 1998-99 Kosovo war, and were discovered by police in Germany in 2005.
     Authorities think they were meant for sale to private collectors. There was no registry for the items and it took investigators years to authenticate them and confirm their origin. They have been placed in Kosovo's Archeological Museum in the capital Pristina alongside the museum's only previous artefact, a similar terracotta figurine known as 'Goddess on the Throne', returned from Serbia through the mediation of the United Nations.
     Kosovo's ethnic Albanians fought a separatist war against Serbia in 1998-99 and Serbia relocated some 1,200 artefacts from Kosovo's museum to Belgrade during the 78-day NATO bombing campaign that eventually ended the conflict. Serbia rejects Kosovo's 2008 declaration of independence, and ownership of the artefacts is still hotly debated.
