Put on your Indiana Jones hat, folks, and let's find out what the dawn of humanity has to offer.
It's amazing what you find when you decide to do a little drawer re-organizing, especially if the drawers you're opening are in a museum.
Though we know much, much more about dinosaurs now than we did even a few decades ago, scientists still haven't pinned down exactly when the creatures first emerged on our planet. Now, thanks to new analysis of an old find, archaeologists have evidence of a dinosaur at least 10 million years older than any other species. Is this the first dinosaur?
Nearly 2,000 years ago, a battle was waged in the Alken Enge wetlands of Denmark. Blood was shed, skulls shattered, axe heads cracked and countless lives sacrificed. Now, archeologists have uncovered the remains of that deadly campaign, and are hoping to discover just what happened.
Sometimes you think you know something about the dawn of man, and then a single archaeological discovery changes everything. In this case, scientists have found a cave in South Africa that suggests the late Stone Age occurred about 20,000 years earlier than we previously thought. Among their finds: what could be the first use of poison in human history.
Scientists in Egypt have found one of the doors to the afterlife.
