GB : Dig discovers 9,000-year-old remains at Didcot

GB : Dig discovers 9,000-year-old remains at Didcot | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

ARCHAEOLOGISTS have proved for the first time that people started living in the Didcot area as early as 9,000 years ago.

Oxford Archaeology has been excavating land at Great Western Park, where more than 3,300 homes are being built, to detail the site’s history.

The two-and-a-half-year dig has uncovered the remains of a Roman villa, and early Bronze Age arrowheads which will now go on display.

Rob Masefield – director of archaeology at RPS Planning, which is managing the investigation – said one of the most important discoveries was hundreds of flints dating back over 9,000 years to the Mesolithic period.

BULGARIE : Archaeological finds reveal ancient Balkan civilizations

Bulgarian archaeologists announced two major finds at the close of the 2012 excavation season, and hope to obtain state and other financial support to shed more light on the life and culture of the early Balkan civilisations.

Vasil Nikolov, former head of the country's National Archaeology Institute, unearthed Europe's oldest urban settlement near Provadia, 50 kilometres west of Varna on the Black Sea, which is dated between 4700 and 4200 BC.

TABLE RONDE : Autour de l'hématite : Circulation et transformation au cours de la préhistoire récente - Méthodes d’analyse | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Le but de cette rencontre interdisciplinaire est de réunir les chercheurs étudiant les matériaux ferrugineux employés durant la préhistoire et de présenter les premiers résultats obtenus par une équipe de préhistoriens et de géologues concernant l'hématite oolithique en particulier sur l'axe Aix-la-Chapelle / Caen. Grâce à cette réunion, nous espérons présenter les avancées dans le domaine nouvellement investi par les chercheurs visant l'étude des matériaux colorants ferrugineux afin de favoriser les échanges. Nous aurons le plaisir d'accueillir des communications en anglais bien que le français sera la langue principale de la table-ronde.

FRANCE : Pratiques funéraires à Buchères, entre 5000 et 3000 ans avant notre ère - Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives

FRANCE : Pratiques funéraires à Buchères, entre 5000 et 3000 ans avant notre ère - Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Dans le cadre du développement du Parc logistique de l’Aube par le Conseil général, une équipe d’archéologues de l’Inrap mène une fouille sur 1,2 hectare depuis fin septembre 2012. Des sépultures datant du Néolithique (5200 à 2800 avant notre ère) ont été découvertes, notamment une sépulture collective du Néolithique récent, d’environ 3500 avant notre ère. Elle relève d’une pratique funéraire très rarement mise au jour en Champagne-Ardenne qui peut aujourd’hui être étudiée avec les méthodes récentes de l’archéologie. Ces découvertes, liées aux vestiges des fouilles précédentes dans le parc logistique de l’Aube, durant lesquelles des habitats et un bûcher funéraire avaient notamment été mis au jour, font de Buchères un site majeur de l’occupation humaine régionale à la période néolithique.

AN ANCIENT floor which has not seen the light of day for 10,000 years has been uncovered at the Ayia Varvara-Asprokremmos site, the antiquities department said yesterday.

ITALIE : Brescia, l'Età del Rame in mostra al Museo Diocesano

Brescia, l'Età del Rame in mostra al Museo Diocesano

 

Nell’esposizione, intitolata ”L’età del Rame. La pianura padana e le Alpi al tempo di Ötzi”, aperta  dal 26 gennaio al 15 maggio, viene illustrato tutto il complesso dei ritrovamenti avvenuti nel 1991 e 1992 al giogo di Tisa, al confine tra Italia e Austria attraverso copie dei materiali, pannelli didattici e la ricostruzione a grandezza naturale dell’uomo del Similaun con tutto il suo abbigliamento ed equipaggiamento.
Saranno forniti i risultati delle ricerche più recenti condotte sulla mummia: analisi del Dna, suo inquadramento negli attuali aplogruppi delle popolazioni europee, aspetti paleopatologici, stato di salute, cause che ne determinarono la morte a 3150 m di quota. Particolare attenzione sarà posta nel confronto tra i materiali posseduti da Ötzi (ascia in rame, cuspidi di freccia, pugnale in selce) e quelli relativi alla cultura di Remedello.
Il percorso della mostra si conclude con l’età del Vaso Campaniforme, documentata in provincia di Brescia dalle due importanti sepolture di S. Cristina di Fiesse e di Ca’ di Marco, a cui saranno affiancate le tombe di recente scoperta a Parma.
