Cool Huh?

Posted by Gerald on July 1, 2007

I find this kind of thing fascinating.

Chinese archaeologists have found a previously unknown chamber in the tomb complex of Qin Shihuang, not far from the site of the “terracotta army.”

Read about it here.

update: Also in archaeological news, researchers have found what they believe to be the earliest hominid fossil yet found in western Europe.  This is cool in that it helps substantiate the idea that homo antecessor was in western Europe a million years ago.  This sort of find is showing us a human pre-history that is more varied and more complicated than had long been thought.
