Swedish Divers Unearth ’Stone Age Atlantis’, Ancient Relics From 11,000 Years In the past
In a compelling discover, divers in Sweden have discovered an historic underwater site, and recovered relics dating again to the stone age. The discovery, deep beneath the Baltic sea, is described as one of the earliest Swedish settlements, but rarer nonetheless as the people of the time had been all nomadic and without traditional villages, thus the finds are ’one of a kind’.
The relics are apparently in remarkably nicely preserved condition as a result of water and the black, gel-like ’Gyttja’ sediment. The divers have unearthed items reminiscent of animal bone carvings, flint instruments animal horns, and even rope.
The site’s age, 11,000 years, is on par chronologically with the a lot recognized and celebrated Turkish site – Gobekli Tepe. The Baltic site may not be as elaborate in terms of what has been discovered so far, however more work must be accomplished to see what is definitely down there. To this point, the silence from Swedish authorities and the cultural departments is astonishing. There’s no recognition or encouragement of this find. Perhaps it is because Swedish authorities are loathe to acknowledge Swedish accomplishments, and even admit to ’hating’ Swedish tradition, and all things to do with Norse historical are cp company and stone island the same past.
That is all the more reason to shine a highlight on the hidden history of the deep Baltic site and the historic peoples who got here before.

Swedish divers unearth a ’Stone Age Atlantis’: 11,000-12 months-old historical settlement found below the Baltic Sea
By Victoria Woollaston | Mail On-line
[…]Archaeologists consider the relics had been left by Swedish nomads 11,000 years in the past and the discovery could also be evidence of one of the oldest settlements ever found within the Nordic region.
Divers in Sweden have found a rare assortment of Stone Age artefacts buried beneath the Baltic Sea, pictured. Archaeologists believe the relics were left by Swedish nomads eleven,000 years ago and the invention could also be proof of one of the oldest settlements ever discovered within the Nordic area, dubbed ’Sweden’s Atlantis’
A few of the relics are so nicely preserved, stories have dubbed the find ’Sweden’s Atlantis’ and recommended the settlement may have been swallowed whole by the sea in the same way as the legendary island within the Atlantic Ocean.
The artefacts have been discovered by Professor Bjorn Nilsson from Soderton College, and a staff from Lunds University, throughout an archaeological dive at Hano, off the coast of Skane County in Sweden.
Buried sixteen metres below the floor, Nilsson uncovered wood, flint instruments, animal horns and ropes.
Amongst essentially the most notable items found embrace a harpoon carving made from an animal bone, and the bones of an historical animal referred to as aurochs.
Aurochs are ancestors of modern-day cattle and lived through Europe earlier than changing into extinct in the early 1600s. The final reported auroch died in Poland in 1627.
This find is critical because it suggests a date for when this stuff would have been used.
Most of the artefacts have been preserved because the diving location is wealthy in a sediment known as gyttja.
Black, gel-like Gyttja is formed when peat begins to decay. Because the peat is buried, the quantity of oxygen drops and it is thought this lack of oxygen prevented the organic artefacts from being lost.
