I Would Like To Regale You If I May
I crave your indulgence with a tale of possible warfare of inferred mayhem of tentatively interpreted battle in this video, which has been sponsored by audible more of that later now in North East Germany. There is a valley called the Tal n serve valley through which a river flows and archaeologists in this paper. The name which is appearing on your screens now have kept their scientific minds working and have tentatively interpreted what they found as the remains of a Bronze Age battle in Northeast Germany and this is quite exciting for them because well battles are not things that naturally lend themselves to the archaeologists. Trowel archaeologists spend almost all their time digging up Graves and refuse pits and settlements and so forth. You know things that stay still for a long time and accumulate you know stuff.
That Tells Us Information About You Know
the past, whereas a battle might last only a few hours so how do you dig up a battle well? In the 1980s a lot of bronze fines were being dredged up from River Bottom and that piqued the archaeologists interest. They took a look at them and notice that they were tend to be small and there was awful lot of weapons. Its have a look at some of the things that came out spearheads. For instance, you can see an axe. There is a sickle that round thing is a lid of a box, various pins and that line.
During At The Bottom Is A
fibula that’s a fancy sort of broach. So could these have been evidence for a battle and they decided to investigate further and in 1996 open this bit and they one of the things they found. made them think Oh! Maybe we have found some evidence of a battle here because again they found no evidence for settlement. There were no loom weights, no pots and pans pottery Well. You have the usual things that you find when you dig up a settlement.
No One Gear To Be Living Here And
yet they found a lot of human bones and one of them had an arrowhead embedded in it. It was embedded in metric up upwards at that sort of angle. In the back of the burn I say in metric because of course this was Germany, so it was 22 millimeters deep. Had the arrow being shot in Britain. It would’ve been 7/8 of an inch deep, but there you go they embedded in metric over there now that’s an odd place for an arrow to be in bed.
Its Difficult To Shoot Yourself Accidentally.
Just there so fairly clearly this man had been shot by someone else, so was it in the battle. Daddy put his arms up to defend himself and got shot that way or possibly he’d been shot by another Arab gone down and then being shot again whilst lying on the ground that would explain the rather unusual entry angle of this Arrowhead the air ahead didn’t show any signs of having ricocheted. It was a complete piece of Flint Bronze Age fairly typical Bronze Age Flint Arrowhead so I thought oh we might be on to something here so they carried on digging and they found quite a lot of Bones. Almost all of them human some animals mixed in there almost all of them horses and the the demography of the humans was quite significant.
There Were Yes Some Childrens, Some Women, But
almost all them were of. men between 20 and 40 years old fighting age so but again backs up the idea that perhaps this is actually a battle. They found now there were two star finds of the dig, which were both probably weapons and they are these two wooden clubs and now one of them looks a bit like a modern rounders bat. It’s that’s not a stick that is that these worked woods has been quite deliberately shaped and the other one looks a bit like like a croquet mallet or something it’s got quite definite hammer head on it and reading the text of the report. I got the impression that they thought that perhaps the the the curve on the handle was deliberate.

- northeast germany quite exciting battles
I Think Theyre Wrong.
I think that there was straight and that the ravages of time have bent it over the millennia but anyway so we have two. clubs of some sort one about 29 inches long and about 25 and a half inches long. Now that’s unusual and why did the wood survive well. It survived because this was very marshy ground as waterlogged conditions and wood can.
If Its Sealed Underground In Fairly
airtight waterlogged conditions. It can survive a very long time, so that’s unusual bronze does survive quite a long time and that might explain why you find more bronze weapons it could be that things weren’t getting more warlike we’re finding more of their weapons now in the Iron Age. They presumably also produce an awful lot of spears and so forth, but we don’t find nearly seven the Iron Age spearhead as we do Bronze Age spear heads but that I’ve put to you is because of the fancy words coming now taphonomic the the science if you like the process of. How something ended up being found by an archaeologist Now Iron rusts stick in the ground for a few millennia and it’s gone it crumbles to nothing usually now you may say well. I I’ve seen Iron Age spear heads and Dark Age spear heading in in museums and they look like spear heads to me and it appears we made out of mine and it could be that the person conserving it had covered the surface in a in subtle of graphite UK silvery stuff which keeps it stable and serve the dual purpose of making it look more like iron, but actually if you put a magnet on an Iron Age spearhead that they’re trying to run a no steel by some clever subterfuge from a museum.
You Will Be Disappointed Because The Magnet Wont
pick it up there’s pretty much no iron left it’s just ferric oxide. It’s just rust that’s survived in the shape of the spearhead that was once of iron and now being conserved deftly to look like an iron spearhead in the museum, whereas Bronze survives really quite well. I’ve dug up a few bronze objects on the archaeological digs that I did many years ago, and some of them come out of the ground even looking a bit shiny and some of them can buff up and look as new. Most of the stuff that I picked out the ground looked a some dark green gungi surface because that so that would be the green patina that that forms on the surface, but that can be buffed off and quite often. You go yeah yeah that’s a bronzy looking thing.
So Bronze Survives Very Well So
it could be that actually they weren’t tremendously warlike and this time is just that we’re. Finding more of what has survived and so what we find well in a layer of river silt about three to six feet down. They found a lot of the bones as I say and on analyzing the bones. They found a lot of wounds on the bones, which again definitely supports the battle idea. Now a lot of these bones weren’t in situ.
They Had Been Washed Downstream From Wherever
they had initially been deposited, but some of them further upstream appeared to be an anatomical relation to each other. Though they weren’t finding complete skeletons even and so how many people to be fined well. We don’t know they found 38 skulls so unless some of these people had two heads, which would be very unusual that’s at least 38 people. But if you finds a rib there and a rib there and a rib there have you. found three ribs from the same person or one rib from three different people.
You Cant Always Tell But They Have
looking at what they’ve got recognized that they’ve got at least a hundred different people. At least a hundred people died in close proximity both in time and place, and why was that then well six to nine percent of them depending exactly on how you count them. Six to nine percent has wounds that’s that’s a lot, particularly when you imagine that they’re not finding complete skeleton, so he’s imagined that you found more of these skeletons. They’d have more wounds on them on different bones elsewhere on their bodies and of course there are probably more people out there to be found because I didn’t excavate the entire Valley. They just put in your dug a few sample trenches so they’ve got at least at the very.
Least A Hundred Different Individuals And With
a lot of wounds You’ve got some identifiable wounds some puncture marks from arrows and spear heads. They’re quite identifiably that and others less so now. There are four different categories of wound and you could say that the chair is the nicest of these wounds is the type that it healed well that’s great and now to cheery thought–the idea that even back then you could you could suffer an injury that’s so bad that it’s it shows on your skeleton. I mean how many times have you in your life suffered an injury which could be spotted by an archaeologist looking at your skeleton 4. ,000 years later.
I Can Imagine Not Very Many.
I don’t think I’ve got a single mark on my skeleton that would give away what injuries I’ve suffered but there was one chap who had three. These on his head yeah three massive craters in his head, but it all healed so what does that mean you could say and this is probably the simplest and most straightforward explanation, but he lived in very violent times and he’d been involved in three fights that he had presumably lost but they didn’t finish him off permanently and that he then lived to fight one more day and then didn’t get that was it that was the end for him or you could say what maybe he was on I’ll minor and a rock fall crushed part of his skull, but he was dragged from the the rock for and and nursed back to health with some good sustaining soup and then he went back in the mind of would you believe it happened again and no he didn’t get into the habit of wearing a helmet in. The admin or third time that’s another possibility but I think it’s more likely that the fact that this guy had three nasty head wounds so that all healed shows that he lived in violent times now and that’s the first category that you might say is it serious because it’s a nice thought that you could you could suffer and still get back to perhaps full health. The opposite of that of course is the wound which hasn’t healed at all so.
For Instance, Theres Theres This Nastily Shattered
hip bone and these are these are sharp edged bones In the break There there is no sign at all of any healing having taken place and so that tells us that this guy didn’t live very long at all. He suffered back wound and then died pretty much immediately afterwards and I didn’t need to read the next sentence. In the report to nobody was going to say possibly from a fall from his horse, It said yeah that’s the standard archeologist Cliche of any wound like that up fall from the horse. Maybe we don’t know that of course he could have got drunk and fallen off.
Archaeologists have tentatively interpreted what they found as the remains of a Bronze Age battle in Northeast Germany . A battle might last only a few hours so how do you dig up a battle well?
