This week we're in "The Tomb of the Eagles". We're talking Neolithic economies, stone tombs, polished handaxes and ancient burials - because what else do I talk about! ⠀ ⠀ In these images, we have the Sea Eagles who have given the tomb its name, a picture of the tomb and some of the beautiful jadeite handaxes found across Late Neolithic sites. ⠀ Listen here: https://buff.ly/32LcCiR ⠀ ⠀ *** #neolithic #lateneolithic #orkney #orcadian #handaxe #longbarrow #tomboftheeagles #isbister #southronaldsay #prehistory #instapod #podcast #historypodcast #newepisode #newshow

The Callanish Stones are an arrangement of standing stones placed in a cruciform pattern with a central stone circle. They were erected in the late Neolithic era, and were a focus for ritual activity during the Bronze Age. They are near the village of Callanish (Gaelic: Calanais) on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. #callanish #neolithic #bronzeage #lewis #outerhebrides #scotland #calanais #robertmoranphotography #film #analog #blackandwhitemag #natgeo #natgeotravel #archaeology #archaeologist #featureshoot #noir #cntraveler #photooftheday #worldviewmag

A recent study has identified the first direct evidence of milk consumption by humans anywhere in the world, by analysing the teeth of Neolithic individuals from Britain. Researchers led by archaeologists from the University of York used proteomic analysis to study ten skeletons from three early and middle Neolithic sites in Britain: Hambledon Hill, Hazleton North, and Banbury Lane. This process involved scraping samples of calculus from their teeth (which is what Dr Sophy Charlton is doing here), extracting the proteins within it, and analysing them using mass spectrometry. There has long been debate surrounding the origins of dairy consumption in European populations, as well as when the ability to digest milk as adults developed. The fact that the Neolithic people examined in this study were consuming milk, whilst also most likely being lactose intolerant, is intriguing. What does this discovery mean?

This is quite the mystery I came across earlier this week on Hanger Down, there is a line of recumbent long stones, clearly not natural as they all rest on smaller packing stones...

Among the animal-tooth pendants and other jewelry discovered at the Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük in Turkey, three human teeth that appear to have been drilled have also just been recovered. Archaeologists were surprised by the find and set out to determine whether they were made from the living or from the dead. . .

Teaching season is over, so now I get to focus for awhile on my quilting. I love teaching, but it’s such a luxury to have dedicated time to just compose (and paint) and quilt, and hide away in my studio. Here’s my next subject: the window in the upper right of the same (larger) photo that I just used for my recently completed Annaghdown Cathedral I (aka, “Cross against the Wall”).⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣While doing the first piece – which was going to be larger and more complex – I just realized that the smaller left-side area, along with its very vertical dimensions, was a better composition than the larger. So that became the quilt. Much to my surprise !! Be open to seeing new possibilities as your create; you might surprise yourself with the final outcome (it actually happens to me a lot).⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣My thinking on this new piece is that since it’s somewhat “architectural” I want to use the “Rule of Thirds” (which I don’t often purposefully employ) to help with the layout, so I’ve sketched in additional window area and stones to get to the proper dimensions. The stones I’ll make as “grungy” and textured as possible (probably using a fair amount of reverse appliqué), but the window elements – since they’re so wonderfully sculpted – will use fabric which is less textured, but more striated (almost like the directional veins in marble). Lots of attention will be paid to the window decorative elements, in particular, which are the main compositional focus, and where I want people to look first – turned edge appliqué will be my main technique (to highlight the architectural and geometric nature of the design) plus, somewhat surprisingly, the use of fairly aggressive (but hopefully still complementary) colors.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣#artquilt #artquilts #fiberarts #fiberart #quiltart #quiltartist #studioartquiltassociates #saqaart #contemporaryquilt #quiltingretreat #fabricpainting #artquiltworkshops #handpaintedfabric #neolithic #hrvfiberartworkshops #artlabribabu #scuolaromanaquilting #quiltingbythelake #madelineislandschoolofthearts #inbetweenstitches1 #schweinfurthartcenter #mendocinoartcenter

Last evening we opened the exhibition 'THE NEOLITHIC REVOLUTION La Draga, the hamlet of wonders' in the @dinvestigadors facilities in Barcelona. . It's about a sample of the most relevant findings in this amazing site attributed to the Early Iberian Neolithic. The exhibition is promoted by the @macarqueologia museum and its curator, @antonipalomo_exp made a commented visit to the exposition. . It was a pleasure to share the opening with colleagues and friends and enjoy a cava wineglass together !!! . @asd_csic @csic @csicdivulga @dinvestigadors @macarqueologia @culturabanyoles @prehistoria_uab @la_draga_site #neolithic #prehistory #archaeology #arqueologia #banyoles #barcelona

The Zaaf was asked to hold a lecture about giant’s graves. So it picked out some photos made in summer. At this time the Zaaf saw a lot of stone accumulations in the area of Osnabrück. First it thought they were made for decoration and entertainment, but then it got to know that these were large graves from the Neolithic Age. There are different kind of graves. This is called Gretesch Stones and it is a passage tomb. You can find these type of graves in lands along the Atlantic seaboard of the western part of Europe. The Gretesch Stones are situated majestically on the banks of the Belm creek. It‘s a very picturesque scenery. Most orthostats and capstones are still there, only those of the north-westerly narrow side at the slope are lost. The grave probably never had an enclosure. Finally you will allow the Zaaf the personal comment that the people in former times were very eccentric. 🐑 Das Zaaf wurde gebeten, einen Vortrag über Hünengräber zu halten. Darum hat es einige Fotos vom letzten Sommer herausgesucht. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt sah das Zaaf mehrere Steinansammlungen in der Gegend von Osnabrück. Zunächst dachte es, sie seien zur Dekoration oder Unterhaltung aufgebaut worden, hörte dann aber dass es sich um Gräber aus der Jungsteinzeit handelte. Es gibt verschiedene Bauformen dieser Gräber. Dieses hier heißt Gretesche Steine und ist ein Ganggrab. Diese Art Gräber findet man in Westeuropa in Ländern entlang der Atlantikküste. Die Greteschen Steine thronen pittoresk am Hochufer des Belmer Bachs. Die Trag- und Decksteine der Grabkammer sind weitgehend erhalten, lediglich die Steine der nordöstlichen Schmalseite in Hanglage sind verloren gegangen. Eine Umfassung hat es vielleicht nie gegeben. Das Zaaf erlaubt sich die Bemerkung, dass die Menschen aus der Jungsteinzeit sehr exzentrisch gewesen zu sein scheinen. 🐑

God dolly, found in the make-up of the Bell Track, one of the Neolithic trackways of the Somerset Levels. Carved of ash, it is hermaphroditic. It has been dated to c. 3000 BC, and sheds light on one aspect of Neolithic superstition - it may have been deliberately buried in a ritual connected with the laying of the track.

⚡️OOAK Wednesday⚡️ This is a one-of-a-kind piece from @annesportun ‘s c a g e collection. A sphere of Neolithic quartz (literally thousands of years old!) is protected within an 18K yellow gold and diamond cage. This terra-cotta colored ancient orb was purchased in Tuscon AZ by Anne herself. In their time, these stones were used as a gift when a loved one moved on to the afterlife. This truly unique piece was created to preserve and display that sentiment. SO COOL! ✨ If you’re a sucker for antique pieces but want something a little more delicate with a hint of architectural clean lines, this necklace is for you! 💫🌕💫

In southern Sweden, 7000 years ago, a priestess was entombed. She was surrounded by reindeer bones, and dressed in a feather cape. . We do not know her personal name, but we may refer to her by the title of “the lady” which in Old Norse is “freyja”. Thousands of years passed before the legends of Freyja were recorded in writing. She was said to be a powerful sorceress, able to shape the path of destiny and foretell the future. . . Scientists determined that she was in her 30s when she died. She had a mid-dark complexion and light blue-green eyes. Her clothing was very minimal, with elaborate carved bone jewellery. She belonged to a hunter-gatherer tribe, living amongst the plentiful forests and marshes of southern Scandinavia. Her precise reconstruction is exhibited at the Trelleborg Museum. .
