Archaeologists Discover Oldest House in Britain

The latest news from the U.K. is that university archaeologists from the University of York and Manchester University have uncovered remains of the oldest home-like structure ever discovered, dating back at least 11,000 years to the Stone Age. In an article in The Independent by David Keys, the paper's archaeology correspondent (isn't that cool?), researchers said the dwelling was found in North Yorkshire near Scarborough. The dwelling could be up to 1,000 years older than previously discovered Stone Age buildings. Here is a link to the article:

My point is that the more archaeologists explore, the more they find and the earlier evidence of civilization stretches back into the deep past. Who knows if evidence of surprisingly advanced civilizations may be found with the continued progress in detection technologies (more on this tomorrow in my discussion of huge new Roman archaeological finds detected using the latest equipment). No, I am not an Atlantis nut, these issues are tied into the plot of my new novel, Gettysburg Passage, available soon from Amazon.
