Many people must also remember that this is not the only place that Eriksson landed when he traveled across oceans to spread the word about Christianity. Leif Eriksson was also first only known as a myth and legend among the Norwegian people until actual proof was founded that Viking indeed landed in North America. Daniel Luzer wrote an article titled, “How We Discovered That Christopher Columbus Didn’t Get to America First” is a detailed article that explains to readers the proof that was founded to prove this theory of Columbus not being the first. Many artifacts were soon being founded were it was believed the Vikings landed. Lutzer explains, “Eventually Ingstad recovered hundreds of Norse artifacts-a
A couple college students looked at the river and saw something white in the water, that was not a hydroplane. The students walked closer and closer and discovered a skeleton. Thinking it might be a part of a murder, they called the police.This issue is important because, in the tenth section of the Washington state constitution, the section states “Justice shall be administered openly and without unnecessary delay.” (Section 10, Washington state constitution). Kennewick man should not be repatriated because we would be able to learn much more about the time period where this skeleton was once a man and because of section four in the Washington state constitution.
Phineas Gage was just a typical railroad construction foreman until one tragic day. This day changed not only his life but also his physical appearance and personality. Phineas Gage was supposedly born July 9, 1823 but the exact date is still uncertain. Much of his life was normal until September 13, 1848. At 25, an accident that would change him forever occurred.
Michelangelo’s David was made in marble, over 17 feet high and it is even higher on his pedestal. Michelangelo used a damaged marble block that nobody wanted it and it was that made him excel in his masterpiece. It had a large hole in the middle. The story goes that when he went to ask Sorderini, the Florence mayor, for the marble block and he said, "Okay. After the worthless now, and you cannot mess it more.” The marble block had been sitting in the courtyard of the Opera di Duomo for over 20 years.
John Colter and Tom Murphy are the two explorers that discovered the same land that is now called "Yellow Stone National Park". John Colter had gone by himself in 1808. He had discovered hot springs, bubbling mud pots, and exploding geysers. But when he told people no one believed him and no one else went because they called it "Colter 's Hell". In 1986 Tom Murphy decided to go there and look at it and some photographs, when he got there he saw wild life and everything John Colter had seen almost one century ago.
He ruled from 1332 b.c. at the age of 9 or 10 -- but his reign was uneventful, although he did restore the original Egyptian religion that his father, Akhenaten, replaced. He died in 1323 b.c, at age 19, and he disappeared from history, until his tomb was discovered in 1922, by Howard Carter, largely intact. They found that King Tutankhamun had a large hole in the back of his skull, and that made some believe that he was assassinated. But, the damage to his skull most likely occurred during the mummification process, after his death.
Can you imagine yourself being relative to someone who lived thousands of years ago? A man named Ötzi who was discovered who was found dead in the mountains of germany by two innocent hikers 24 years ago. After his body was taken to a lab they discovered many interesting things that confused many archaeologists. They even had to go back and change textbooks! SInce then they don’t what clues to the past he might reveal.
In Northern Italy in1994, two hikers came across the frozen remains of an ancient human. British geneticist Bryan Sykes was called in to confirm that the remains were in fact of an ancient European. Unfortunately, the elements had worn away most of the DNA evidence. Only mitochondrial DNA, which is inherited only from the mother and is the most durable, remained. Few scientists but Sykes had ever used mitochondrial DNA because it was so newly discovered.
Frozen, stiff, mummified and looking very much like honey-soy chicken pieces. So no, it 's not barbequed food and definitely not chicken but a body of a man found high up in the Italian Alps; Mount Otzal. The discovered body, named Otzi, has been classically called: The Iceman. Originally when the mountaineers found him in 1991, they thought he was a missing hiker but to their delight, they had just stumbled across a remarkable historical find. From carbon-dating, scientists believe Otzi to be around 5000 years old and have pieced together a range of details that inform us of these prehistoric times.
The discussion post I chose to go over was the Phineas Gage story, living (1823-1860) was a victim of a horrible accident in 1848. It is said that Phineas 's injuries helped scientists comprehend more about the brain and how humans behave, his story is also known as the “American Crowbar Case.” When Gage was only 25 years old he sustained an awful brain injury. This whole story made the public very curious and this also made a very important case for the scientists to try to help more understand how the brain works. Gage worked as a foreman on the construction of the Rutland and Burlington Railroad in Vermont in 1848. This job required him to often work with dynamite, on September 13th Gage was working with a tamping iron to make a compact explosion
During a research expedition on July 12, scientists shockingly discovered an old shipwreck just off the coast of North Carolina. Using an underwater robot, a manned submarine, and sonar, the team found what they believe to be wreckage from a ship dating back to the 1700s. A Bit of Blind Luck The discovery of the old shipwreck was made public on Friday by a team of marine scientists lead by Cindy Van Dover, director of the Duke University Marine Laboratory, and consisted of university scientists from Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of Oregon. Whether by pure coincidence or sheer luck, Van Dover and her crew accidentally stumbled across the old shipwreck as they were searching for a mooring they had deployed on a previous trip back in 2012. Using the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s (WHOI) autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), they made the exciting find.
