The "Frankenstein" Bog Mummies Of Scotland

More than a decade ago, a team of archaeologists found the buried bodies of a man and a woman in Scotland. They had died 3,000 years ago, but they weren’t buried right away. Instead, their bodies were thrown into the Scottish bog where they were preserved and mummified for 300 to 600 years before they were finally put underground. But the skeletons looked weird, to modern scientists. The woman’s jaw was a little too large for her skull, and the man’s limbs seemed out of place.

According to new isotopic dating and DNA experiments, the mummies— both the male and the female—were assembled from the body parts of at least six people! The woman came from individuals who died around the same time. But the man’s … components? … came from people who died hundreds of years apart.

Not only were the bodies assembled like Frankenstein, but they were interred in an odd way too. The bodies were removed from the peat bog after preservation, but before acid destroyed the bones, and then re-interred in soil, where the soft tissue broke down but the bones were preserved.

Why the burying, digging up, and burying again? Why the Frankenstein mismash of multiple bodies? Modern scientists have no idea, but there are plenty of theories, each a little wilder than the last.

Pesquisa com drone descobre novos geoglifos de Nazca

Arqueólogos conseguiram identificar vários geoglifos inéditos na província de Palpa, no Peru.

Situadas em um remoto planalto árido no sul do Peru, as Linhas de Nazca são uma série de projetos artísticos espetaculares, incluindo imagens de aranhas, macacos, beija-flores, peixes e lagartos, que foram gravadas no chão do deserto há cerca de 2.000 anos.

Os desenhos foram produzidos removendo o deserto vermelho para desvendar o solo branco e poeirento que se encontra por baixo.

Alguns dos desenhos são enormes e medem até 200 metros de diâmetro.

Agora, com a ajuda da tecnologia de drones, arqueólogos peruanos descobriram mais 50 geoglifos que, acredita-se, datam de 2.500 anos.

As formas tinham sido perdidas anteriormente por pesquisas de satélite devido à espessura das linhas.

“Esta é realmente uma nova era de exploração”, disse Kristin Romey, da National Geographic.
