The local news outlet WCTV reported that a construction team working in Cape Coral accidentally discovered a massive bone from a creature while they were performing their construction work. This creature is said to have not walked the Earth for thousands of years.
The recently found bone is supposed to be that of a mammoth or mastodon. Both are the ancient relatives of modern elephants that have been vanished for a very long ago. As per the reports, paleontologists are assigned to work on this creature. They will be focused to find out the exact species of the bone. However, it is already profusely clear that these remnants are exceedingly old.
As per the estimation from researchers, this fossil is up to 250,000 Years of age. However, it is not said to be the most exciting element of this discovery. Because of the large size of the bone part, the scientists are expecting the presence of more of the animal’s fossilized skeleton buried in the nearby land. For the time being, the bone will be in the Cape Coral Historical Museum custody.
On a similar note, recently, archaeologists proclaimed that they have utilized a novel technique that will find out beer residues in nearly 2,500-Year-old clay cups. These cups were found in a site from northern Iraq.
Claudia Glatz, Senior Lecturer, Archaeology, University of Glasgow, proclaimed that Elsa [Perruchini] has highlighted the chemical signature of the fermentation process in the vessels. He added that the vessels are also holding the chemical signatures steady with barley.
Archaeologists are supposing that the employment of the latest technique will prove to be a groundbreaking, and will help in finding out beer at other excavations. It is also assisting Ph.D. archaeology students Glatz and Perruchini to find out more about the Babylonian Empire’s outer reaches in a period of cultural upheaval.
