JAPON : Pottery cooked from the start

JAPON : Pottery cooked from the start | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Ancient leftovers indicate that the earliest pottery was used by hunter-gatherers for cooking, thousands of years before farming communities began heating their food in vessels.

Chemical analyses of charred food clinging to pottery fragments from sites across Japan indicate that hunter-gatherers who lived there between 15,300 and 11,200 years ago cooked freshwater or marine animals in ceramic vessels, say bioarchaeologist Oliver Craig of the University of York in England and his colleagues.

Iceman 'had bad teeth'

Iceman 'had bad teeth' | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The famed prehistoric man known as the Iceman had bad teeth, according to the first CAT scan on the dental health of the 5,300-year-old frozen mummy kept in the northern Italian city of Bolzano. The Iceman, also known as Oetzi because of the Oetz Alpine Valley where he was found in a glacier by a German hiking couple in 1991, "had tooth decay, deep dental abrasions, and a dead front tooth that was probably caused by an accident or blow," said a team led by Frank Ruhli of Zurich's Centre for Evolutionary Medicine. The Swiss scientists made 3-D reconstructions of the mummy's oral cavity which showed that Oetzi "also suffered from strong infection of the paradental tissue, which determined a lack of attachment of the teeth to the gum, especially the molars,", Ruhli's team said.

Eismensch Ötzi hatte ein schlechtes Gebiss

Ötzi, der Eismann, hatte es nicht leicht: Er litt unter Arterienverkalkung und musste sich im Lauf seines Lebens mit gebrochenen Rippen, Gallensteinen und einer Borrelien-Infektion herumschlagen. Als wäre das nicht genug, kamen dazu offenbar auch noch Zahnschmerzen, zeigt jetzt eine neue Studie: Ötzi hatte Karies, fortgeschrittene Parodontose und diverse Verletzungen an den Zähnen. Trotzdem sei das Gebiss "funktional" gewesen, schreiben die Wissenschaftler – zumindest größtenteils.

FRANCE : Atlit Yam, 10000 ans sous les mers : le film en avant-première au Louvre le 6 juin

FRANCE : Atlit Yam, 10000 ans sous les mers : le film en avant-première au Louvre le 6 juin | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

tlit Yam est un ancien village néolithique submergé au large des côtes d'Atlit, en Israel.

Atlit-Yam a apporté les premières preuves connues d'un système de subsistance agro-pastoral-marin sur la côte levantine.
Le site est daté entre 6900 et 6300 avant JC. Il se situe aujourd'hui entre 8 et 12 m sous le niveau de la mer dans la baie d'Atlit à l'embouchure de la rivière Oren, sur la côte du Carmel.

Atlit-Yam couvre une superficie d'environ 40.000 m⊃2;.

Les fouilles sous-marines ont permis de découvrir des maisons rectangulaires et un puits. A l'époque le littoral était à environ 1 km à l'ouest de la côte actuelle.

Des tas de poissons prêts pour le commerce ou le stockage ont conduit les scientifiques à conclure que le village a été abandonné soudainement. Une étude italienne menée par Maria Pareschi de l'Institut national italien de géophysique et de vulcanologie à Pise indique qu'un effondrement volcanique du flanc oriental de l'Etna il y a 8500 années a pu créer un tsunami haut de 40m. Il aurait ainsi englouti certaines villes côtières de la Méditerranée en quelques heures.
Pour certain scientifiques l'abandon apparent de Yam Atlit confirmerait la réalité du tsunami.


Le Mystère d’Atlit Yam, 10 000 ans sous les mers, est un documentaire réalisé par Jean Bergeron.
