i am wondering....a 13th century artifact with Sumerian language/cuniform writing..
... in the 13th century BC, is housed at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution.
The 13th century BC was the period from 1300 to 1201 BC. ..
Now i thought that the Sumerian era with their pantheon of Gods etc was way before 1,300bce
like they were thriving and had a far reaching empire and knowledge of the Heavens back around 6-5,000 bce
why would there be a 'Agate' (marble/crystal) Hawk Beak styled polished stone with engraved language being created so late in history?
others say the shape is reminescent of a crescent moon.. i see plenty of 'Hawk Beak' knives carried by tradespersons and hunters here in SC, and that
image sure looks like a hawk beak to me...
look at either an Islam Crescent or the state flag of SC for a true 'crescent'
etched or carved Agate in 1300bce... so craftsmen were able to carve even sculpt the 13 crystal skulls, and we use this find as evidence that super
hard rock could be fashioned by 'primitive' craftsmen and stone cutters/artists back then without diamond cutting tools... hmmmm
thanks for the article that can trigger a thousand thoughts
