The researcher above is grasping the lid handle to a 3,000-year-old beehive, part of an extensive apiary in ancient Israel containing the oldest known remnants of beekeeping.  The site is at an Iron Age settlement called Tel Rehov & houses the remains of a large beekeeping operation, dated to about 3000 years ago -- the time of King David & King Solomon.  There is no evidence of similar apiaries in the Middle East or the surrounding area.  Now we know why Israel was the land of milk and honey. by susana

A masterpiece of late Stone Age art, this terracotta sculpture, known as The Thinker (“Ganditorul”), was unearthed in 1956 during archeological excavations  of Neolithic settlement and burial debris in the lower Danube region, near Cernavoda in Romania.  Created during the Hamangia culture, it is believed to be the oldest known prehistoric sculpture that reflects human introspection. by NGL

The oldest submerged city: A 5,000 old sunken perfectly designed city in Southern Greece In the Peloponnesus region of southern Greece there is a small village called Pavlopetri, where a nearby ancient city dating back 5,000 years resides. However, this is not an ordinary archaeological site – the city can be found about 4 meters underwater and is the oldest known submerged city in the world. by Sofia.Art

A guess at Cleopatra's real face.  Pieced together from images on ancient artefacts, including a ring dating from Cleopatra's reign 2,000 years ago, it is the culmination of more than a year of painstaking research.    The result is a beautiful young woman of mixed ethnicity  -  very different to the porcelain-skinned Westernised version portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1961 movie Cleopatra. by emily

Long ago, the War-Khasis people of Meghalaya in northeastern India began forming the roots of the rubber tree into bridges that would give them passage over the river. The root bridges are extraordinarily strong and because they are alive and still growing, the bridges actually gain strength over time—and some of the ancient root bridges used daily by the people of the villages around Cherrapunji may be well over 500 years old. by julianne

♡    In Greek Mythology, the Naiads or Naiades were a type of  nymph who presided over fountains, wells, springs, streams, and brooks. They were known to be very ancient spirits that inhabited the still waters of marshes, ponds and lagoon-lakes. The essence of a Naiad was bound to her spring, so if a Naiad’s body of water dried, she would die. by Flaming June

The ancient Egyptians became great labor organizers. Part of the labor force working on the pyramids would have been organized as a crew, perhaps consisting of 2,000 men. This crew was divided into two gangs of 1,000 workers, which in turn was divided into five zaa (in each gang), a term that was translated by the ancient Greeks as "phyloi" or phyle, meaning tribe, group or brotherhood.

Perhaps the most haunted castle in Ireland is Leap Castle. More than 400 years ago, in 1532, brother turned against brother to shed blood. One was a warrior who rushed into the chapel and used his sword to slay the priest who was his brother. The priest fell across the altar and died. The chapel is known as Bloody Chapel since that time. The dungeon in the castle is called an oubliette. Prisoners pushed into the oubliette fell eight feet onto by dionne
