Re:Attractions 12 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0  
Wow, thanks for sharing this. I would like to take a look at it. Is it open to the public? It´s amazing to see how people lived at that times. In Qatar (Arabian Peninsula) danish archeolousts recently discovered an early human settlements which is 750.000 years old. From a time where Archaic Homo sapiens were on their way out of Africa in the process of discovering the world. Read more here:

Or in Spain, bones were discovered which are 1 million years old. They found a kind of bone, whose small size indicates that it belonged to a female, is regarded as a key piece in the puzzle that scientists are trying to put together on how the human species spread out from Africa, and on how it occupied Europe.

Also, just a few years ago, they discovered a settlement in Seydiþehir/Turkey from the Neolithic era which is 9000 years old. See here:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/ 1597702/posts

The oldest settlement in Europe, founded by modern humans exists in todays Czech republic(in Mladec) and is proved to be 30.000 years old:

In Romania they even found an older settlement. The specimens all date to a time period belonging to the Aurignacians, an early modern human culture that existed about 30,000 to 40,000 years ago in todays European continent.

Not to mention discoveries in Ibero-America (Peru etc.). All together a very fascinating subject!
