The items that they discover tell us a lot about human activity throughout history and prehistory. They sometimes find objects and structures that date back tens of thousands of years. Amazingly enough, archaeological digs help us to fill in the holes and explain what’s happened on the timeline of humanity. It's actually pretty cool, isn't it?
We once discovered a whole new piece of information about a recently discovered species of hominin thanks to a tooth that was found in Siberia. The analysis of the tooth showed that the species actually co-existed with both the Neanderthals and Homo sapiens. We had no idea that these Denisovans even existed before archaeologists found Denisovan specimens back in 2008.
Then there was the discovery of the Cave of Altamira, which gave us some of the best examples of Paleolithic art in the world. Who knew that the prehistoric people who lived 22,000 years ago had the same artistic instinct that modern humans have now? Plus, if the Rosetta Stone had never been uncovered, we probably would still be working on cracking the code to Egyptian hieroglyphics today. As you can see, archaeological discoveries are important. Sometimes we discover things that we would never have expected: like a vampire grave in Bulgaria featuring a man with an iron rod hammered through him. And other times, we discover things that are horrific: like ash-covered victims of Pompeii's volcanic explosion who are forever frozen in contorted positions of fear and pain. Check out this video if you want to hear about some of the greatest archaeological finds of all time. We promise that you won't be disappointed!
