Archaeologists Discovered A Civilization That Existed Long Before The Ancient Egyptians

An international team of researchers has uncovered the tomb of a mysterious culture that predates the Ancient Egyptians. The burial site is specifically located in the Lybian desert. All of the artifacts unearthed in that location date from 9300 to 3000 years old. Experts decided that megalithic constructions are quite comparable to Stonehenge based on the tombs.

Scientists uncovered three graves with objects decorated with seashells and stones, as well as ceramics, between 2001 and 2003. At the same time, experts speculated that those who lived in that culture were tall and had a low infant mortality rate. In 2009, two more graves were uncovered, although the people who lived there were not as tall as the others and had a high infant dєαth rate.

Expets concluded that the first cemetery was for persons of high social standing, while the others were for people of lesser social standing. In addition, a new land was indentified. That was supposed to be a location for kids under the age of three. Finally, experts concluded that all off these characteristics suggesr that the ancient civilisation to which they belonged was highly sophisticated.
