Swedish divers unearth Stone Age 'Atlantis' relics

"One-of-a-kind" Stone Age artifacts left by Swedish nomads 11,000 years ago have been discovered by divers in the Baltic Sea, prompting some to claim that Sweden's Atlantis had been found.

"What we have here is maybe one of the oldest settlements from the first more permanent sites in Scania and in Sweden full stop,"

I'm always fascinated to see new discoveries. Though, I never do like sensationalist titles that some stories get.

from your article:


Nilsson admitted that "lousy Swedish tabloids" had blown the story out of the water by labelling the find "Sweden's Atlantis", even though the remnants never belonged to an actual village. The people were all nomadic at the time, he explained, so there was no village.


Awesome find, none the less.


Peace.

When I saw that picture, I really thought that was a statue's "leg and foot" I mean seriously, it even looks like it has toes!!

Interesting find though. Would like to see the carving, instead of a tree. They should have more pictures!

Why would a nomadic group stop and take the time to build such things?

Cause it's not actually "Atlantis", thats just media blow up, it's a settlement build by nomads who then moved on to build another settlement somewhere else.

What is really awesome about this find is the wood artifacts they
can recover, they are preserved from the environment.


Amazingly, the artifacts have been perfectly preserved because of the abundant oxygen-consuming“gyttja” -- a black, gel-like sediment which is formed when peat begins to decay.

"Around 11,000 years ago there was a build up in the area, a lagoon or sorts ... and all the tree and bone pieces are preserved in it. If the settlement was on dry land we would only have the stone-based things, nothing organic," Nilsson said.

Nomads could only stay in one spot for so long, once they began depleting the food sources in the vicinity they had to move on.

Sweden in one of those areas that the ice age swept clean so to find anything before 12,000 BC or close to that age is significant.

That just seems like lots of work...

Seems of very little use to Nomadic People.

It's not uncommon for nomadic people to have a yearly meeting of like groups. A special place to do this may have been constructed. They met to arrange marriages, gossip, fight and see relatives in other groups who remained separated so as to be able to obtain food.

It should provide some interesting insight on that period of time - too bad about the media's aggrandizement

Hyperborea is real then, awesome.


......the Hyperboreans....were mythical people who lived "beyond the North Wind"



This land was supposed to be perfect, with the sun shining twenty-four hours a day, which to modern ears suggests a possible location within the Arctic Circle
