Swedish Divers Unearth ’Stone Age Atlantis’, Historic Relics From 11,000 Years In the past
In a compelling discover, divers in Sweden have discovered an historical underwater site, and recovered relics courting back to the stone age. The invention, deep beneath the Baltic sea, is described as one of the earliest Swedish settlements, but rarer nonetheless as the folks of the time had been all nomadic and without traditional villages, thus the finds are ’one of a kind’.
The relics are apparently in remarkably properly preserved situation because of the water and the black, gel-like ’Gyttja’ sediment. The divers have unearthed items resembling animal bone carvings, flint instruments animal horns, and even rope.
The site’s age, 11,000 years, is on par chronologically with the a lot recognized and celebrated Turkish site – Gobekli Tepe. The Baltic site may not be as elaborate in terms of what has been discovered thus far, however more work must be done to see what is definitely down there. To this point, the silence from Swedish authorities and the cultural departments is astonishing. There’s no recognition or encouragement of this discover. Perhaps it’s because Swedish authorities are loathe to acknowledge Swedish accomplishments, and even admit to ’hating’ Swedish tradition, and all issues to do with Norse history.
That is all the more cause to shine a highlight on the hidden history of the deep Baltic site and the historical peoples who got here before.

[…]Archaeologists imagine the relics had been left by Swedish nomads 11,000 years in the past and the discovery could also be evidence of one of the oldest settlements ever found within the Nordic region.
Divers in Sweden have found a rare collection of Stone Age artefacts buried beneath the Baltic Sea, pictured. Archaeologists imagine the relics have been left by Swedish nomads eleven,000 years ago and the discovery may be evidence of one of the oldest settlements ever found in the Nordic area, dubbed ’Sweden’s Atlantis’
Some of the relics are so well preserved, reports have dubbed the discover ’Sweden’s Atlantis’ and urged the settlement stone island 890 down jacket could have been swallowed complete by the sea in the same means because the mythical island within the Atlantic Ocean.
The artefacts have been found by Professor Bjorn Nilsson from Soderton University, and a team from Lunds College, during an archaeological dive at Hano, off the coast of Skane County in Sweden.
Buried sixteen metres beneath the surface, Nilsson uncovered wooden, flint tools, animal horns and ropes.
Among probably the most notable gadgets found embody a harpoon carving made from an animal bone, and the bones of an historic animal referred to as aurochs.
Aurochs are ancestors of modern-day cattle and lived by means of Europe earlier than becoming extinct in the early 1600s. The final reported auroch died in Poland in 1627.
This find is significant because it suggests a date for when these things would have been used.
Most of the artefacts have been preserved because the diving location is wealthy in a sediment called gyttja.
Black, gel-like Gyttja is formed when peat begins to decay. Because the peat is buried, the amount of oxygen drops and it is thought this lack of oxygen prevented the organic artefacts from being lost.
