[NP] But for the first time, a large campsite has been uncovered that proves people moved through the area when ice still covered parts of the province.
[NP] 'We have individual finds and that's how we knew people were here,' said Brent Suttie, archaeologist in charge of the site.
- Wiki Trivia - "The 9th millennium BC marks the beginning of the Neolithic period. [NP] Pottery became widespread (with independent development in Central America) and animal husbandry (pastoralism) spread to Africa and Eurasia. [....]"[....] Professor Dinesh Agrawal of Penn State University reviewed the evidence from a variety of sources and estimated the dates as follows: 1. These are the "bog bodies." The individual bog bodies show a great degree of variation in their state of preservation, from skeletons, to well-preserved complete bodies, to isolated heads and limbs.
[NP] Agriculture spread throughout the Fertile Crescent and use of pottery became more widespread. - Amesbury in Wiltshire confirmed as oldest UK settlement - "A Wiltshire town has been confirmed as the longest continuous settlement in the United Kingdom. P.] Amesbury, including Stonehenge, has been continually occupied since 8820BC, experts have found. They range in date from 8,000 "Stonehenge was for a long while thought to have been built slowly - over about 1000 years between 2,100 and 1,100 BC.
These cultural developments from the Archaic (ca.9,500- 4000 years ago) through the Formative Period (ca.
3200-2000 years ago) attest to a long period of economic and social intensification, a trend that is common throughout the world.
During photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide from the air and transform it into sugars, carbohydrates, and other carbon-based molecules.
Some of those carbon products transfer from the roots to symbiotic fungi and soil microbes, which store the carbon in soil as humus.
In places wehere the ground is bare - from overgrazing or from the common practice of leaving fields unplanted for part of the year - photosynthesis stops. Lal calculates that land use changes such as these have stripped 70 billion to 100 billion tons of carbon from the world's soils and pumped it into the earth's atmosphere, oceans, and lakes since the dawn of agriculture. - Geography Trivia / Ireland - "The shape and landscape of present-day Ireland—an island of 27,100 square miles [70,200 square kilometers]—were formed 10,000 years ago when Atlantic Ocean glaciers slowly began their retreat.
Radiocarbon dates place the beginning of the occupation at ca. At the time, the site, now only five miles from the Gulf Coast near Tallahassee, was nearly 100 miles inland, and Florida's landscape resembled Africa's savannahs.
Within 100 years, however, rising water at the end of the last glaciation flooded the site, sealing it with deposits that contain shells of freshwater molluscs."8,000 B. - Ancient Ruins / India - "At Poompuhur, facing the Bay of Bengal, Indian divers found a horseshoe-shaped object, measuring 85 metres in length, in water more than 23 metres deep.
[....] Suttie said they have found some material in the campsite that came from central Maine. - Human Occupation / South America - "The altiplano of Peru and Bolivia appears at first sight to be a very inhospitable land.
[NP] 'So, already we know there were some connections with central Maine as early as between 10,000 and 11,000 years,' he said. Its high mountains, windswept plains, and icy waters of Lake Titicaca make it a stark, yet beautiful landscape. ) at a base elevation of 12,600 feet above sea level, is the ancestral home to the famous Andean animals (llamas and alpacas) and plants (potatoes and quioa).
In this 7,000 year span, we see the first colonization of the altiplano, the settling of permanent villages, and the rise of chiefly societies that formed the basis of Tiwanaku, one of the high civilizations of the New World.
