A few years ago, Dr. Bruno Boulestin and his team were investigating the region, when they hit a grave containing the bones of 500 people. The marks on the bones show that the bodies were skinned and had their flesh removed using techniques almost identical to those for butchering animals. One researcher suggested that by CrashFistFight

The galaxy's nucleus is the bright object in the center of the image; the spoke-like structures are wisps of material connecting the nucleus to the outer ring of young stars. The galaxy's unusual configuration was created by a nearly head-on collision with a smaller galaxy about 200 million years ago. by allie

Newgrange was constructed over 5,000 years ago (about 3,200 B.C.), making it older than Stonehenge in England and the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. Newgrange was built during the Neolithic Age by a farming community that prospered on the rich lands of the Boyne Valley. Knowth and Dowth are similar mounds. by Hercio Dias
