10,000-Year-Old Human Settlements In Bolivia Evidence Of Ancient Amazon Peoples

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Archaeologists announced a discovery that has broad implications for the history of the Amazon: evidence of human settlements in Bolivia dating back at least 10,000 years.

International researchers came to this conclusion after discovering remnants of human activity in three mounds examined out of the hundreds that scatter the the Llanos de Moxos region in present-day Bolivia, according to the paper published this week in peer-reviewed scientific journal PLoS ONE. Inside some of the mounds was evidence apparently left by human foragers, including ancient sea shells, animal bones and charcoal. Radiocarbon dating of the soil suggests the mounds are the oldest known archaeological sites in the area.

Details of recovered burnt earth, shells and bone remains from excavations in present-day Bolivia.

 

Not only of the Amazon but mankind in general.  Civilization, 10,000 years old?  Not in the middle east!?!   I absolutely love these stories and I think the work archeologists and associated professions do to piece together the history of man is of absolute importance.  If I were president, I would create a cabinet level position for anitquities and fund it.   Great find, great work, kudos and congrats to those men and woman who found this discovery and I thank you.  -Mort
