Egypt has witnessed several big archeological discoveries this year.
An ancient skull dating back more than 6,000 years may have belonged to the earliest known human victim of a tsunami, scientists say.
The Aitape skull — named after a small coastal town in the north of Papua New Guinea, where it was found — was discovered in 1929 by Australian geologist Paul S. Since then, archaeologists and anthropologists have been trying to unravel the circumstances that resulted in it ending up there.
I concluded that Lily was beyond the help of these flyers, and continued collecting them with a false nonchalance.
Terrell, who has conducted extensive research in Papua New Guinea, also noted that the skull might help convince skeptics “that all of us on earth must take climate change and rising sea levels seriously.” “Many people in the world today face the threat of rising sea levels and (the) increasing numbers and power of climatic events, like tsunamis,” added Marta Mirazon Lahr, from the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies at the University of Cambridge, noting that almost 80% of the world’s population today lives near the coast.
Last week, in north-western Fayoum, a German-Egyptian archaeological mission discovered remains of the first hellenistic gymnasium ever found in Egypt.
In early October, archeologists have discovered part of a Pharaonic obelisk dating back to about 4,300 years ago in Saqqara district on the outskirt of Egypt's Giza province near Cairo.
The most recent study, published Wednesday, suggests the skull may have belonged to a human who drowned in a tsunami or had his or her grave displaced by the tsunami’s waves.
