Experts call the origin and purpose of strange objects one of the mysteries of archaeology
Archaeologists from the Australian national University have discovered in the jungles of Laos more than one hundred 1000-year-old massive stone jars.
Housed these objects in 15 sites that Nara scientists were not known. Giant jugs, or as they are called archaeologists, “pitchers of the dead” are considered to be one of the mysteries of archeology, over which scientists scratching their heads for a long time.
So far it is not established who created these vessels and for what purpose.
One version says that a huge stone vessels used to bury the dead, but it is curious that human remains there is still no one found.
“We hope that the study of these sites will allow you to have a clear idea about the ancient culture and how she treated his dead,” – said expedition leader Nicholas take out.
The scientists added That the weight of the jars is very high, some are pulling in a ton. And it is unclear how the ancients were able to transport such huge items neprokhodimoye through the forest.
As previously reported, scientists at the University of Cincinnati and the Chinese University of Geosciences, found that the largest mass extinction in Earth’s history were caused by volcanic eruptions.
The researchers found in the deposits of the age of 252 million years ago around the world the traces of mercury released into the atmosphere during the combustion of coal, in which there is an accumulation of the metal. With the rain it fell into the seas and oceans, and later in marine deposits. At the same time there is a mass Permian extinction, also known as the great extinction.
The eruption took place on the territory of the Siberian traps — volcanic system, which is characterized by the effusion of a large quantity of molten rock in a short time. Magma moving to the surface through cracks in the earth for thousands of years. Was thrown into the air three million cubic kilometers of ash, and the average temperature on Earth has risen by 10 degrees Celsius.
The result is increased acidity of the seas, which also saw the expansion of dead zones — areas with very low oxygen content. As a result, disappeared 96% of marine species, 73 percent of vertebrate species and 83% of insect species. Scientists estimate that the depletion of biological diversity lasted for 60 thousand years.
Recall that “the Whole state will be wiped off the face of the Earth”: scientists have warned about the imminent disaster.
As reported Politeka, scientists have predicted a new Earth Apocalypse: “fatal collision”.
Also Politeka wrote that scientists have uncovered the mystery of the disappearance of ancient people: very suddenly, this sensation.
