HALF A MILLION YEARS OLD!

The ramifications of this find are, well, to say the least HUGE. If proven, and I believe it has been this shell tells a different story to what our History classes told us at  School. This brings BANG into question something I am always asking “Is there a huge piece of Earth’s history missing” And this shell brings that question tumbling down to Earth. This is History shattering at least. More when I find it, but this could change how we view our past

The ancient, big-bodied relatives of modern-day humans not only ate freshwater shellfish, but engraved their shells and used them as tools, a new study finds. Researchers in Java, Indonesia, discovered engravings on a shell that dates to between 540,000 and 430,000 years ago. Theancient artwork could be the oldest known geometric carving made by a human ancestor, the researchers said. It’s unclear what the engraving — a series of slashes and an “M”-shaped zigzag — means, but it could indicate that Homo erectus, the ancestor of modern humans, may have been smarter than was previously thought

A second look at a century-old shell collection uncovered remarkable engravings made on a freshwater shellfish shell in Java, Indonesia. The carving is the oldest known engraving made by a human ancestor, suggesting that Homo erectus, ancestor to modern-day humans, may have been smarter than was previously thought.

I totally LOVE this stuff, Inca capital city of Cusco a road has been dug up because they think there is a City below an ancient road! Now this blows my mind. I love to find new things, research new things and allow Science to be right sometimes. It is an old INCA road, it’s possible this pre-dates the Inca’s themselves. Can you imagine? A Pre-Inca civilization! I mean that is as WOW as it gets. I have the short video, I have tons of Images. If this is your thing, prepare to be WOW’d http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cusco

A wall that could pre-date the INCA civilization, now, I mean, WOW, this would throw a LOT of what our species know about our planet into space

A road, under a road, that leads down into, well who knows what, YET! This could be the find of the Century at least
