FOUND IN JAPAN REMAINS OF A HOME OF 600,000 YEARS AGO
The remains of a human home of 600,000 years old have been discovered at
Kamitakamori, Miyagi Prefecture, in Japan. Archeologists of the Tohoku Paleolithic Institute, Tohoku Fukushi University,
support that it is the more ancient home of the world.
We add that,
it seems that also in science the competitions of the
sport are subentred. All say that their finds are the most ancient (generally it is true), putting in second plain news
perhaps more important. The Lower Paleolithic was unknown in Japan until little decades ago. This discovery, with such
dating, and other discoveries with amigdale equally " beautiful " as the Europeans ones, place Japan to the par of
indeed, perhaps, the Japanese finds are more ancient.
In Japan, for now, there are no news about artistic finds,i.e.anthropomorhic or zoomorphic lithic sculptures of the
Paleolithic , but this, probably, because still not there are researchers that search for them, or
that know to see to them. In the case of the home of Kamitakamori, where sure every medical report comes
analyzed with cure, it is improbable thatthey can be sculptures, in how much the sculptures (at least in
Europe) are not never in the places of habitation, but in the places of cult,
places deducted from associations of sculptures.
