Still Waters

Eagle talons are regarded as the first elements used to make jewellery by Neanderthals, a practice which spread around Southern Europe about 120,000 to 40,000 years ago. Now, for the first time, researchers found evidence of the ornamental uses of eagle talons in the Iberian Peninsula. An article published on the cover of the journal Science Advances talks about the findings, which took place in the site of the Cave Foradada in Calafell.

The interest in these findings lies in the fact that it is the most modern piece of the kind so far regarding the Neanderthal period and the first one found in the Iberian Peninsula. This finding widens the temporal and geographical limits that were estimated for these kind of Neanderthal ornaments. This would be "the last necklace made by the Neanderthals," according to Antonio Rodríguez-Hidalgo.

A Canticle for Leibowitz so it seems. Cyclical history of a the struggle to integrate into a hostile environment, the expansion of the culture, and then the demise of the original culture with the rise of newer cultures.
