From the mouths of babes: bottles that weaned prehistoric infants

From the mouths of babes: bottles that weaned prehistoric infantsArchaeologists have uncovered the first evidence that our prehistoric ancestors in Europe weaned their infants much the way we do now, using specialised baby bottles to feed them animal milk. The discovery casts rare light on childhood and child-rearing in ancient humans — an area that experts say has long been overlooked. “This is the first direct evidence for what babies and infants were eating and drinking in prehistory,” Julie Dunne, the study’s lead author and a biomolecular archaeologist at the University of Bristol, told AFP.

Prehistoric city offers glimpse of ancient living near Jerusalem

Prehistoric city offers glimpse of ancient living near JerusalemThe 9,000-year-old metropolis, uncovered during a survey before the construction of a new highway, is one of the biggest ever found, the Israel Antiquities Authority said on Tuesday. It covered dozens of acres near what is today the town of Motza, some five km (three miles) west of Jerusalem. “This is most probably the largest excavation of this time period in the Middle East, which will allow the research to advance leaps and bounds ahead of where we are today, just by the amount of material that we are able to save and preserve from this site,” Lauren Davis, an archaeologist with Israel’s antiquities authority, told Reuters.

Engraved prehistoric human bones show ritualistic cannibalism

Engraved prehistoric human bones show ritualistic cannibalismEngravings on a human bone from a prehistoric archaeological site in a cave in southern England shows that human cannibals ate their prey and then performed ritualistic burials with the remains, scientists said on Wednesday. The forearm bone appears to have been disarticulated, filleted, chewed, and then engraved with a zig-zag design before being broken to extract bone marrow, said scientists from Britain’s Natural History Museum who conducted the analysis. The finding, published in the journal PLOS ONE, adds to previous studies of bones from the site, called Gough’s Cave, thought to be from Britain’s Palaeolithic period – the early Stone Age.
