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.

A modern working "Neolithic" burial mound is to be built in Wiltshire. The 50m (160ft) long barrow at All Cannings near Devizes, will contain niches that will house urns.

People's urns will be buried in mound, which is a type of burial dating back to the Neo period.

Handprints in ancient cave art most often belonged to women, overturning the dogma that the earliest artists were all men. Photograph courtesy Dean Snow.
Ashanti Coffee's insight:

This kind of makes sense! If men were out hunting and gathering, how would they also have time to draw on walls? Plus, women are generally a bit more creative than men. I feel as though we give credit to men in many aspects of history that women actually deserve credit  for.

Iron age tunic thaws out of Norwegian ice

Iron age tunic thaws out of Norwegian  ice | Neolithic Period | Scoop.it

An Iron Age tunic is amongst the discoveries found under melting snow on Norwegian mountains.

Other findings include Neolithic arrows and bow fragments, thought to be about 6000 years old.

Snow on the Norwegian mountains, and elsewhere, is rapidly melting due to climate change, which is now unveiling a world of well preserved new discoveries.

The findings are published in two papers in the journal Antiquity.

The British always find the good stuff. Cheaters. But anyways. That sounds like it's going to help open up a whole new chain of understanding behind a lot of the Neolithic secrets still floating around.

Makes you wonder if they found of the wine in drinkable condition and how much that would cost today. The find of this wine cellar is pretty cool and shows how far back civilization. It also showed how civilization had such a great way to persevere their food and drinks.

Archeologists believe that the Chinese people have been using these kind of musical instruments to play music as far back as 9,000 years ago. These people are very creative.

Kasey Saeturn's curator insight, October 16, 2013 2:22 PM

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.

This is so cute to me! Especially because they were located near Verona, a city associated with Romeo and Juliet. This is a unique finding for archeologists because double-burials were rare in the Neolithic period. I'm a helpless romantic so I definitely had to scoop this.

O. Nieuwenhuyse et al. (eds.), Interpreting the Late Neolithic of Upper Mesopotamia - Αρχαιολογία Online | Neolithic Period | Scoop.it
The times between the Neolithic and Urban revolutions in Mesopotamia have for a long time been interpreted as a period of stagnation. This volume is part of an emerging discourse that challenges such assumptions.

Ashanti Coffee's insight:

I think its very important for archeologists to know why bones aged/decayed the way they did. Knowing this gives us alot more insight on factors like climate change and other enviromental factors. It could also shed light on how ancient burial rituals took place.
