Construction of these caves occurred fitfully from 200BC to 600AD. Like Borobudur, the cave lay forgotten for centuries. They were rediscovered by a British officer, John Smith, while out hunting for tigers, in 1819. You can still see his name and the date, faintly written in pencil, on the walls.

Danish Archaeologists have been busy digging around the old Cathedral in Ribe for several years. Here lies a cemetery, which was abandoned about 1050. The sensational character of the find has however more to do with the fact, that the earliest graves have been dated to around 850 – more than a 100 years before Denmark was officially Christianised according to the famous rune-stone of Harold Bluetooth in Jellinge

Image is a fossilized jawbone, dubbed Penghu 1, found submerged in seafloor near Taiwan. Dated between 10,000 and 190,000 years ago. It is the first ancient human fossil found in Taiwan and may indicate the presence of an unknown archaic species of humans who lived in Asia during the Pleistocene era, possibly hundreds of thousands of years before modern humans arrived.

The earliest human footprints outside of Africa have been uncovered, on the English coast, by a team of scientists led by Queen Mary University of London, the British Museum and the Natural History Museum.    Up to five people left the series of footprints in mud on the bank of an ancient river estuary over 800,000 years ago at Happisburgh in northeast Norfolk.

Man geht davon aus, dass die Steinfiguren bearbeitet wurden, im (halb-)fertigen Zustand Statuen den Hang des Rano-Raraku an Seilen herunter gelassen wurde und auf halber Höhe des Hanges wurden die Moais in Gruben stehend „zwischengelagert“. Dort wurden sie dann in der Regel fertiggestellt. Zahlreiche mehr oder weniger fertige Statuen stehen heute noch dort. Von den Gruben ist allerdings nichts mehr zu sehen, weshalb nur die Köpfe herausragen.
