Cabeceras Temas. Once upon a time the Thracians inhabited Bulgarian lands. Millennia after, their ancient and mysterious culture revealed its true magnificence.
The earliest writings date back to Mesopotamia circa BC. It was believed that a demonic creature called Lilu or Lilitu (female form) would on top, Latin) were not applied to these mythical demons until medevial times.
Dating creation is the attempt to provide an estimate of the age of Earth or the age of the universe as understood through the origin myths of various religious traditions. Various traditional beliefs held that Planet Earth , or the entire Universe , was brought into being in a grand creation event by one or more gods. Once these cultures developed calendars , many began to ponder the question of precisely how long ago this event happened.
The standard ancient Sumerian King List WB lists various mythical antediluvian kings and gives them reigns of several tens of thousands of years. The first Sumerian king Alulim , at Eridu , is described as reigning for 28, years, followed by several later kings of similar periods. In total these antediluvian kings ruled for , years from the time when “the kingship was lowered from heaven” to the time when “the flood” swept over the land. A layer of riverine sediments, radiocarbon dated to ca.
Polychrome pottery from the Jemdet Nasr period — BC was discovered immediately below the Shuruppak flood stratum. The “flood” described in the Sumerian King List, is believed to have a historical basis, and has been dated BC.
Marlborough Mound: ‘Merlin’s burial place’ built in 2400 BC
The Bison of Siberia suddenly became extinct. At a site on the Liahknov islands in the far northern Pacific region known as the Laptev Sea a 12,year-old, 10, BC, deposit was discovered in This deposit was composed of millions of broken trees feet deep. One violent blow of nature had wrenched them all out, roots and all. Encased in the mud beneath the splintered wood were the remains of the broken bodies of millions of animals such as the Mammoths and Bison.
Ivan Lyakhov, the discoverer of the islands stated that from viewing the enormous quantities of Mammoth remains there that it seemed that the island was composed almost completely of bones and tusks.
Mythical Concepts of Human Ages. There are many attempts Hesiod, a Greek poet writing around BC to BC, came up with 5 ages: Golden Age. wild animals and seeds of wild plants for The “Copper Complex culture” can be dated back to at least BC. Early Bronze II – III, BC Four wheeled.
How did 4, year old demons turn into blue guys singing songs about friendship? It took a few thousand years of city conquering and myth twisting to divorce the old from the new, but thanks to pop culture and 17th century France, ancient and terrifying creatures of the desert became docile cartoon characters and spunky blondes engaging in classic televised hijinks.
Genies, or jinn as the Arabic word is Romanized, come from a long line of mythological creatures dating back to BC. Clearly the jinn got the better end of that deal. No source states how much time passed between the birth of the jinn and the birth of humans. Jinn are much more than demons or spirits.
According to Mesopotamian myth, humans were created by the gods as their servants but — as revealed in the so-called Epic of Atrahasis, inscribed on clay tablets from the period — BC — they soon multiplied and their noise began to disturb the sleep of the supreme god Enlil. He sent diseases and a drought to reduce their number, but eventually decided to destroy humanity by sending a flood.
Recognising the folly of such an act, the wise god Enki told his servant Atrahasis to dismantle his house and build a boat.

The prehistory of Ireland , pieced together from archaeological evidence, begins with the first evidence of humans in Ireland around 10, BC,  and finishes with the start of the historical record around AD. Both of these dates are later than for much of Europe and all of the Near East. For much of Europe , the historical record begins when the Romans invaded; as Ireland was not invaded by the Romans its historical record starts later, with the coming of Christianity.
The two periods that have left the most spectacular groups of remains are the Neolithic, with its megalithic tombs, and the gold jewellery of the Bronze Age, when Ireland was a major centre of gold mining. Ireland has many areas of bogland, and a great number of archaeological finds have been recovered from these. The anaerobic conditions sometimes preserve organic materials exceptionally well, as with a number of bog bodies , a Mesolithic wicker fish-trap,  and a Bronze Age textile with delicate tassels of horse hair.
During the Last Glacial Maximum ca. This period’s effects on Ireland are referred to as Midland General Glaciation,  or Midlandian glaciation. Genetic evidence suggests this reoccupation began in southwestern Europe and faunal remains suggest the existence of a refugium in Iberia that extended up into southern France. Those originally attracted to the north during the pre- boreal period would be species like reindeer and aurochs.
Some sites as far north as Sweden inhabited earlier than 10, years ago suggest that humans might have used glacial termini as places from which they hunted migratory game. These factors and ecological changes brought humans to the edge of the northernmost ice-free zones of continental Europe by the onset of the Holocene and this included regions close to Ireland. However, during the early part of the Holocene Ireland itself had a climate that was inhospitable to most European animals and plants.
Human occupation was unlikely, although fishing was possible.
Copper In History
Tattoos have been adorning human bodies for thousands of years. And while the complete history of tattooing is much too long to write about here, the following is the condensed version of a tradition found all around the globe. The Ice Man has been carbon dated at 5, years old. A 2, year old Scythian male was uncovered in in Siberia, preserved in ice. Then, in , a woman whose shoulders, wrists and thumbs exhibited the tattoos of mythical creatures was discovered in a tomb in Altai.
During the Han Dynasty, it is believed only criminals had tattoos.
B.C. But following the more recent discovery of the Iceman from the area of patterns, this date has been pushed back a further thousand years when he In , the 2, year old body of a Scythian male was discovered Then, in , a woman with tattoos, again of mythical creatures on her.
Protected by the oxygen-free water at the seafloor, the ship has been sitting undisturbed since B. It is a Greek vessel that looks like something the mythical hero Odysseus could have sailed — literally. According to the researchers, a very similar vessel is painted on the side of the British Museum’s “Siren Vase,” which depicts Odysseus chained to the mast of his ship as it sails past the sweet-voiced sirens. The ship was discovered in the fall of , on the third of three survey trips to the Black Sea.
Led by Adams, Lyudmil Vagalinsky of the Bulgarian Academy of Science and Kalin Dimitrov of the Center of Underwater Archaeology in Bulgaria, the research team surveyed square miles 2, square kilometers of the seabed during all three seasons. The investigations turned up more than 60 shipwrecks, including some previously reported to date back to the Ottoman and Byzantine empires.
The Black Sea has only a narrow connection to the Mediterranean Sea, so it drains poorly. And the Black Sea is fed by freshwater from the surrounding land, which floats on top of the saltier water closer to the bottom. This salty layer is extremely low in oxygen, which keeps wood-eating microbes away from shipwrecks on the seafloor.
For that reason, even centuries-old ships look as if they went down yesterday. The Greek vessel sits about 1.
HUNT FOR THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN
In the early Seventeenth Century, an Italian aristocrat Pietro della Valle, spurred by curiosity about the Biblical past, was one of the first modern western Europeans to venture to Anatolia, Turkey. He is thought to be the first collector of Mesopotamian cylinder seals. These were mostly from about ca. In the late Seventeenth Century, a German, Carsten Niebuhr, made extensive drawings of the buildings, reliefs, and inscriptions at Persepolis, Iran. These dated from about B.
Genies, or jinn as the Romanized Arabic word, comes from along line of mythological creatures dating back to BC. According to the Qur’an, God created.
The bacterium came from a group called the Alphaproteobacteria. The ancestral eukaryote was later believed to be a Lokiarchaeote. A member team of international researchers published their paper in the South African Journal of Science. The discovery pushed the emergence of animal life back millions of years. Sponges were believed to be one of the first animals to evolve from single-celled organisms. They fed by filtering tiny organisms from seawater were later considered as the 1st examples of complex animal life.
In scientists identified traces of muscle in a cnidarian, Haootia quadriformis, a creature related to modern jellyfish, sea anemones and coral. A study reported on fossils of the creature which lived nearly 50 million years before animals first emerged from the sea onto land. It belonged to an extinct early arthropod group called anomalocaridids. In Australian scientists hailed the discovery of a pair of insect-like eyes belonging to a freakish prehistoric super-predator.
