Egyptian Arrowhead Specimens. (the List App Needs More Cool Science and History Shit.)
The following arrowheads were made by pre ancient Egyptian civilizations from a time known as the Predynastic period. They have a date range from 40,000 to 6,000 years ago. I still need some legitimate dating done for these bad boys.
- •We searched for these at a place called Faiyum. It's all desert out there, but used to be green and lush back at that time period. It's an hour drive southwest of Cairo.
- •We found these laying on the surface. No joke. After every major sandstorm we'd drive out and find arrowheads.
- •There are no tourists out at these places, and you can still find awesome old artifacts.
- •Everyone focuses on the Ancient Egyptian period and any remains of that time. So anything else is largely ignored, including all these little remnants.
- •This goes to show that there are so many undiscovered details of ancient peoples around the world.
- •It's crazy to think about what we may uncover. Not just in anthropology but in essentially every science, and how that may change our perspective.
- •"We don't know what we don't know."
- •That quote has impacted me greatly. Keep exploring.
