Stone Age Facebook
To gain a better insight into the everyday life of our ancestors, researchers at the University of Cambridge have discovered prehistoric version of “Facebook“. In Russia and Sweden were found on two granite slabs the size of a football field, where several thousand drawings were delineated. Analyzing them, archaeologists have concluded that this is an early form of “social networking” and one of the ways of communication in the Bronze Age. With pictures of granite slabs, tribes exchanged knowledge and tips on hunting and other skills important for survival. A large number of different images demonstrates that the ancient people were returning to the same place for thousands of years, to draw (share) or view (learn) something new. Knowing that such place exist, provided comfort and feeling of connection to our ancestors. Beside this, scientists discovered that this form of communication of cavemen became mobile. The pictures could be found on a variety of tools like handles slates, knives and pots, not just on rocks.
