The Archaeological Discoveries That Changed Our View of History



History is far more complicated that we would like to believe. Even in our schools today, different versions of events are being taught to students, depending on the country they’re in and how those events in history affected that country. “Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past,” right? Nevertheless, we also have archaeology, which sometimes helps us to better understand what happened regardless of what was written down in centuries past. And sometimes, some such discoveries turn the way we saw history right on its head.

    Perhaps we should all go back to Africa since we all came from there originally. Then we can stop telling each other to get out of each others countries.

    There's loads of evidence that Egyptians, Chinese, Romans, and other Europeans among other people were making regular trips to the New World thousands of years before the Vikings even existed. This evidence has been piling up for centuries, but most of it gets dismissed because it doesn't fit the nice, neat theories of the establishment. But the evidence is there, just as valid as any evidence found by the establishment.

    I was just at Cahokia mounds last weekend. Monk's mound is pretty impressive! Video doesn't mention "Woodhenge" which was rebuilt several times and potentially used to help align buildings.

    Paused at 8.44. the idea of dog's 'evolution' the similarities of the 33k yr old skull, being similar to a skull of todays dog, would indicate that this relationship is far older, as wolves relationship with man would naturally cause certain wolves to be born and bred with characteristics that best suit this relationship, just as dog's and other animals are bred to desirable proportions and attributes (todays practices of this is disgusting IMO), would be the mentality of people back then would it not? albeit dog's designs would be more like grayhounds for speed, collies for heard control, bloodhound and other such dogs for hunting (different types of dog, for different types of hunt).

    Evolution in shorter lived lifeforms are more apparent to us longer living beings I mean when did the first pug arrive on scene, or the poodle? what use are they to humans other than as bag toys for the stupid or rich?

    I love dog's.

    I was wondering how long dog's have been 'mans best friend', I know cat's have been privilege for at least 10k years (I enjoyed your vid, catpocalypse).

    at 13.40 why don't we use that tech to find the lost city of z in the amazons? or other area's of the world where mapping is difficult? it would be so awesome to discover what the Fawcetts 'discovered'.

    at the last fact/point, I came across a paper that indicates a link between two different people in two different distances coming up with the same or similar idea (implemented rather differently), just like with the lightbulb and how apparently 4 different people had the idea, just implementing it rather differently, and other such things.

    Yeah I think I'm talking about telepathy…

    Some of these discoveries are paleontological rather than archaeological.

    Thank you for NOT saying "Indians" when referring to early inhabitants of North America. That misnomer is lingering far longer than it should. Indians are from India.

    Some of those didn't so much as change our view of history, than they did shift the goalposts a little.

    We talked about Erikson when I was in elementary school in the 50's but they left and did not return, but Columbus came back and started settlements.

What if CRISPR could not only treat disease, but detect it too?




Omar Abudayyeh, a MD/PhD student at the Broad Institute, is part of a team working on a new application for CRISPR technology. Rather than using it to edit genomes, as it has been used in the past, the team is using the technology to detect viruses, bacteria, and cancer at attomolar levels, allowing for highly accurate diagnosis with small amounts of sample. Check out Omar’s 2017 TEDMED Hive Talk to learn more about how this simple and inexpensive diagnostic tool has the potential to make a big impact.
