4,000-year-old-year-old flowers found at


Still Waters

Recommended Posts

For the first time ever there is proof that pre-historic people placed bunches of flowers in the grave when they buried their dead, experts have said.

Archaeologists have discovered a bunch of meadowsweet blossoms in a Bronze Age grave at Forteviot, south of Perth.

The find is reported in the journal "British Archaeology", out this week.

Pollen found in earlier digs had been thought to have come from honey, or the alcoholic drink mead but this find may finally rule that theory out.

Dr Kenneth Brophy, from the University of Glasgow, said the flowers "don't look very much. Just about three or four millimetres across.

"But these are the first proof that people in the Bronze Age were actually placing flowers in with burials."

Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt are part of the Bronze Age. They knew about agriculture, mathematics, and astronomy. They weren't exactly primitive in this period.

So why would their emotions be any different to ours when it comes to remembering a loved one? 4000 years ago is considered our near past in the evolutionary chain.

For some odd reasons, culture has to come from the Middle East, therefore the Celt, the Tene Culture people have to be considered as barbarians by academia.. truth coming out?
