Posted in INTERESTING       28 May 2020       2028       1

Historian Myko Clelland shared the news about the mind-blowing discovery and it went viral on Twitter

Myko Clelland, the historian who shared the news on Twitter, said that “it’s rare to find something in such good condition and so complete.” “Usually,” he continued, “man and nature have taken their course and parts may be missing or damaged.”

The uncovering of the mosaic work was done by the Soprintendenza di Verona, an organization “who have been tirelessly working to showcase some of the most tantalizing remnants of the ancient past in the area.” Myko said that he’s got a family in Verona “who showed me what they were working on and how magnificent what they have discovered is, and I just had to share it with the world—they deserve all the credit.”

And people got rightly confused by how such treasure could get buried underneath the soil

It’s a natural process that things become covered over time and nature reclaims them. Myko commented: “Soil and leaves can cover them, floods can bring silt and water, or dust settles on them.”

Of course, it’s not only nature that’s responsible for that. “People have a habit of often building in the same locations and on top of their previous efforts—they might build over the foundations of old buildings or atop their ruins.” That means that things like this mosaic slowly become buried over time.“

There are parts of old Mesopotamia, for example, that have hills in areas that should be entirely flat,” Myko said. These are actually the remains of entire towns, where residents built layer after layer until the whole thing became meters tall.

This Twitter user has shared another impressive ancient finding

As for the future, there may be many more discoveries like this in our lifetime. “They may not all be as beautiful as this one, but each one can connect us to the world of our ancestors, which makes every find absolutely priceless.

 

Others were amazed by how people still find ancient treasures like this
