  • Archaeologists Unearth 14,000 Year Old Hidden Treasure
    ...
    1. In The Pines

    Off the west coast of Canada, on a tiny remote island deep in the green of the Great Bear Rainforest, a team of archaeologists was hard at work. On their hands and knees in the cold mud, they were digging on a fool’s hope, an ancient folk tale.
    ...
    There, in the chilly muck of the pit, they made a startling discovery. Buried beneath the soil were the remains of a hearth, with burned pieces of charcoal. Finding this ancient oven, let alone anything, went against the grain of all historical knowledge up until then. How was it possible, and what could it possibly mean?

    3. A Wealth Of Artifacts

    As they continued digging, the team kept on stumbling across more and more surprises long concealed by the earth. There were archaic versions of weapons, and tools for hunting, fishing, and lighting fires. Students and scientists alike were astounded by the amount of artifacts.

    The Heiltsuk people, the First Nation indigenous to the Great Bear Rainforest, had always said that the very first of their people had sheltered from the Ice Age in this same place, the mysterious Triquet Island. But scientists and archaeologists opposed their claims, believing they had no basis according to prehistory. So how could this be possible?

        • World's Oldest Customer Complaint Goes Viral

          ...
          A 3,800-year-old Babylonian tablet from the ancient Sumerian city-state of Ur in Mesopotamia—now Tell el-Muqayyar—is the oldest documented customer complaint known to man.

          In the clay tablet, a man named Nanni whined to merchant Ea-nasir about how he was delivered the wrong grade of cooper ore. “How have you treated me for that copper?” he wrote. “You have withheld my money bag from me in enemy territory; it is now up to you to restore [my money] to me in full.”

          The message was written in the Akkadian language, an extinct East Semitic language that was spoken in ancient Mesopotamia from the 30th century B.C.E. until it was replaced. The tablet is currently sitting at the British Museum in London.
