Swedish Divers Unearth ’Stone Age Atlantis’, Historical Relics From eleven,000 Years Ago
In a compelling discover, divers in Sweden have discovered an ancient underwater site, and recovered relics relationship back to the stone age. The discovery, deep beneath the Baltic sea, is described as one of many earliest Swedish settlements, but rarer still as the individuals of the time had been all nomadic and without conventional villages, thus the finds are ’one of a kind’.
The relics are apparently in remarkably nicely preserved condition due to the water and the black, gel-like ’Gyttja’ sediment. The divers have unearthed gadgets such as animal bone carvings, flint instruments animal horns, and even rope.
The site’s age, 11,000 years, is on par chronologically with the much recognized and celebrated Turkish site – Gobekli Tepe. The Baltic site may not be as elaborate when it comes to what has been discovered so far, but extra work needs to be executed to see what is definitely down there. To date, the silence from Swedish authorities and the cultural departments is astonishing. There’s no recognition or encouragement of this find. Maybe it is because Swedish authorities are loathe to recognize Swedish accomplishments, and even admit to ’hating’ Swedish tradition, and all things to do with Norse history.
That is all of the more cause to shine a spotlight on the hidden historical past of the deep Baltic site and the ancient peoples who came earlier than.

Divers in Sweden have found a uncommon assortment of Stone Age artefacts buried beneath the Baltic Sea, pictured. Archaeologists imagine the relics have been left by Swedish nomads eleven,000 years in the past and the invention could also be evidence of one of the oldest settlements ever discovered in the Nordic area, dubbed ’Sweden’s Atlantis’
A number of the relics are so nicely preserved, reviews have dubbed the discover ’Sweden’s Atlantis’ and recommended the settlement could have been swallowed complete by the sea in the same way because the legendary island within the Atlantic Ocean.
The artefacts have been found by Professor Bjorn Nilsson from Soderton University, and a team from Lunds University, throughout an archaeological dive at Hano, off the coast of Skane County in Sweden.
Buried sixteen metres beneath the surface, Nilsson uncovered wood, flint tools, animal horns and ropes.
Amongst essentially the most notable objects discovered embody a harpoon carving made from an animal bone, and the bones of an ancient animal called aurochs.
Aurochs are ancestors of modern-day cattle and lived via Europe before changing into extinct within the early 1600s. The final reported auroch died in Poland in 1627.
This find is important as a result of it suggests a date for when these things would have been used.
Many of the artefacts have been preserved because the diving location is rich in a sediment referred to as gyttja.
Black, gel-like Gyttja is formed when peat begins to decay. As the peat stone island site is buried, the quantity of oxygen drops and it’s thought this lack of oxygen prevented the natural artefacts from being lost.
