I grew my own cluster of Bizmuth crystals! This was a super fun project to do and I highly recommend trying it. The best part though is if you aren't happy with your results, you can melt it back down and try again!

Does human civilization go back farther than Göbelki Tepe? (12,000 years ago)

Anatomically modern humans have been around for atleast 50,000 years. We can confirm for sure that agricultural civilizations have spawned independently all over the world starting 10,000 years ago. I think that if these civilizations spawn as a result of our instincts, then it’s possible that there are other civilizations that predate the last ice age that we just lack the evidence for. Wbu?

Archaeology is everywhere

So as part of my PhD I'm currently researching sites that have not been recorded in the landscape, particularly where I live. The recent dry summers of 2018 have highlighted lots of potential unrecorded archaeology on Bing and Google maps, including this fascinating little place which was previously unrecorded. To establish whether it is or isn't archaeological ultimately we must excavate a site. But there are non destructive methods which are quicker and less damaging to the potential archaeology underneath. This includes a method called magnetometry which measures magnetic concentrations within the soil in order to produce an image highlighting geological and archaeological 'anomalies' which, when properly georeferenced, can be excavated at a later date if needed. Sometimes however you get results like these, which are so great you can say with a degree of confidence what it likely is - in this case an Iron Age or Roman period defended settlement! Imagine one minute you're in a field and the next the field turns out to have been the home of generations of people long since lost, it's an awesome feeling 😎

Erchan stone, Bodedern

The Ercagni or Erchan stone is an early medieval gravestone in St Ferns church, Bodedern, having originally hailed from Arfryn, a deserted Christian site a short distance nearby. Ercagni, likely an Irish name, was an important individual buried with others in a cemetery dating back over 1,400 years - between the fifth and seventh centuries AD. They may have been the original 'founders' grave of a now lost community of early Christians living on this part of the island, possibly a local religious leader who never reached sainthood, or perhaps some powerful Christian chieftain. The cemetery never developed beyond this point as a church, as seen at many places, with the identity of its dead forgotten save for local myth and legend. This cemetery wasn't just placed somewhere at random, having been positioned directly within the earthworks of a much, much earlier settlement site of Bronze Age date. Perhaps the Christian community tried to show a continuation of ritual activity under new management here, a tradition seen at many Christian sites on the island - numbers of which located near standing stones, barrows and other ancient monuments. Many of these early gravestones are reported in antiquarian sources as being relocated from other places, usually by estates looking to add a bit of ancient flavour to their landscape, or tenant farmers destroying and clearing archaeological remains to make space for growing crops or livestock. What makes this one so special is that at its time it was the *only* known example to be recorded within an archaeological context in Wales!

Llangoed Iron Age coin hoard, Anglesey

An incredibly rare discovery for Wales - a collection of fifteen gold 'staters' from the 'Corieltauvi' tribe of Eastern England (their tribal capital, or 'oppidum', suggested to be under present day Slough) was made earlier this year by detectorists and declared treasure. These coins are an absolutely amazing and significant discovery for the north west of Wales - the Iron Age cultures of this area are, as suggested from archaeological evidence to lack coinage and ceramics (aceramic), so quite what on earth this is doing here is very unusual. It's possible that the coins were used to purchase some form of goods here, or maybe used in barter to be molten down by the natives here at some later date which never materialised. What these goods might have been is difficult to say - copper was a product that was mined on the island, and the isle also would've likely had trade from other areas across the Irish Sea zone. A darker image presents itself however with the discovery of the iron gang chain from Llyn Cerrig Bach. While it is impossible to confirm this, it is entirely possible that a slave trader may have also operated from the area - this however is highly speculative but warrants consideration, as Britain's biggest trades during the Iron Age were wool and slaves!

Sword belt loop

While researching a previously unrecorded site near my house I came across this curious object in the plough soil. Upon taking it to the HER for recording it turned out to be an Iron Age sword belt loop! A reminder that you can never know what to expect when out and about researching your own back yard, as it were!

I have an uncomfy question for any archaeologists out there

Where is the line between grave robbery and archaeology? How much time has to pass before you're not a criminal and you're just a history enthusiast? 😂😂😂

Video covering the accepted age range of the Rig Veda

From the YouTube channel "World of Antiquity"... no specifically new evidence has been found, but this may be a useful overview for laypeople of current academic thinking on the age of the Rig Veda. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvTlJDWG0lM This is a start of a new series by the channel meant to discuss common myths/misunderstandings about ancient history, and I rather like the professor's work.

Archaeology and dictatoral regimes

Every piece of archaeological evidence is important. I pray for a free world that allows archaeology to be able to explore and save physical evidence before regimes decide that the said evidence runs against their narrative and destroy it. God knows what can we learn from these destroyed evidences.
