Green Stone Bracelet May Have Been Made by Denisovans



Quote
NOVOSIBIRSK, SIBERIA—A stone bracelet unearthed in Denisova Cave in the Altai Mountains of Siberia in 2008 is being called the oldest-known jewelry of its kind. Anatoly Derevyanko, director of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography, and the research team believe that the cave’s Denisovan layers were uncontaminated by human activity from a later period. The soil around the two fragments of the jewelry piece was dated with oxygen isotopic analysis to 40,000 years ago. “In the same layer, where we found a Denisovan bone, were found interesting things; until then it was believed these were the hallmark of the emergence of Homo sapiens. First of all, there were symbolic items, such as jewelry, including the stone bracelet as well as a ring, carved out of marble,” Derevyanko told The Siberian Times. Details of the ring have not been released, but the bracelet, fashioned from imported chlorite, is fragile and thought to have been worn only on special occasions by an elite woman or child. “The ancient master was skilled in techniques previously considered not characteristic for the Palaeolithic era, such as easel speed drilling, boring tool type rasp, grinding and polishing with a leather and skins of varying degrees of tanning,” Derevyanko said. Wear near a hole drilled on the outer surface of the bracelet suggests that it may have held a leather strap attached to a heavy charm. This wear also suggests that the bracelet was worn on the right wrist. “The bracelet is stunning—in bright sunlight it reflects the sun’s rays, at night by the fire it casts a deep shade of green,” he said.

Found in the Denisova Cave - underground pearl of the Altai Territory

Translated from Russian...



In recent years, many people have heard of Denisova Cave - underground pearl of the Altai Territory. Discovered in her antiquity, since 1982, one after another raised considerable buzz in the scientific world. Yes there in teaching? News reaches and far removed from the people of archeology.

We will not go into detailed descriptions of the Denisova Cave. We will only say that it is an underground refuge for many centuries and even millennia have been a comfortable home for our ancestors of. Located in the beautiful valley of the cave (for the fans to look through Google Map or Google Earth - 51 ° 23'51.29 "p. M. 84 ° 40'34.34" in. E), surrounded by mountains, very close to the river Anouilh. The perfect place for a long holiday and permanent housing for all times.

Local talk so:

Used to say, there once lived a powerful shaman who could turn into a bear. Because the cave Au-Tash is called in the local, in the Altai, which means "Bear stone." Angry uncle was a cave dweller. I collect tribute from all the local residents by threatening force. And if someone does not pay, then the shaman called upon the mountain clouds, lightning struck them, raised a storm, and large boulders cast down. All those who did not listen to the sorcerer, or died at or deprived harvest - mow boulder. Win sorcerer could only god Ulgen, which the shaman bent, stone storm away from him and put it ... well was, but magic is gone for good. Even archaeologists - Won - say that if the stones cave otkolupnut, the rain starts.



It was so in fact or not, but from the beginning Denisova cave was a refuge for many generations. And not only the mythical shamans bears, but also ordinary people, and even the oldest of our ancestors. Through research and excavations in the stone arches of the Ayu-Tash we learn more about the past of our planet and our civilization.

For example, previously found in the cave of the things confirmed in the scientific world view that Neanderthals were settled in the Altai is not 30-50 thousand. Years ago, and at least 300 thousand.! You feel the difference?

Many of the scientists' ideas about the past swayed after the opening of the cave. After all, it showed almost all the cultural layers of the main technological eras in the history of mankind. Therefore Denisova cave called "an encyclopedia of ancient and ancient history of Asia."

A recent finding has surprised many researchers. They found the stone of the bracelet, which - attention! - According to the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography of the Academy of Sciences, doctor of historical sciences Pavel Volkov, decorated its existence ancient women 40-50 thousand. Years ago! Dr. Volkov said that "this thing can be called the most ancient human adornment, ancient jewelry." (And in fact a few years ago it was believed that the manufacture of jewelry trinkets ancestors began to engage in only 10 thousand. Years ago!)



However, the surprising findings except age processability, with which it was made. The stone favors done smooth hole, through which passes a string with beads. The work done so precisely that there is no doubt: the bracelet produced a very skilled worker, and he used technology similar to modern drilling machine.

Deputy Director of the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography Michael Shunkov said scientists was a big surprise that "the most archaic kind of been the owner of a progressive culture." Recall that we are talking about Neanderthals. Previously it was thought that they and the knife is not always able to keep ...

Scientists gave the find to the museum of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography in Novosibirsk and do new excavations. That's all the news. But the best is yet to come!

If someone does not remember, earlier in Denisova Cave were found the remains of an unknown species (!) Of an ancient man.

The photo of this mysterious tooth kind of person. Should be noted that the size of a tooth that is many times greater than an analog of a modern man.
