This seems very intresting that they found a neolithic skull in a garden and also seems I would want to learn more about it.

Andreina Ruiz's curator insight, January 16, 2014 9:45 PM

It is interesting to know that the inticate marks of the skull from the the blood vessels still visible on the the inner surface. It believes to be from a mid age woman. What is weird is that the rest of the remains are not found yet. Why would the body be buried by the river, if it is assume it was?

This scoop uncovers a new discovery of  a Neolithic bow and arrow found in Norway. Though this discovery was found in Northern Europe, pretty far from what region I am studying in class, it is still remarkable that after so much time this artifact was just recently found. There may be even more we have yet to discover about the Neolithic Age.
