Earliest Evidence of Using Flower Beds for Burial

Earliest Evidence of Using Flower Beds for Burial Found in Raqefet Cave in Mt. Carmel

July 4, 2013 — The earliest evidence of using flower beds for burial, dating back to 13,700 years ago, was discovered in Raqefet Cave in Mt. Carmel (northern Israel), during excavations led by the University of Haifa. In four different graves from the Natufian period, dating back to 13,700-11,700 years ago, dozens of impressions of Salvia plants and other species of sedges and mints (the Lamiaceae family), were found under human skeletons.

a) Field photograph of skeletons Homo 25 (adult, left) and Homo 28 (adolescent, right) during excavation; note the almost vertical slab behind the skull of Homo 25 and the missing skull of H28 (scale 20 cm). b) A reconstruction of the double burial at the time of inhumation; the skull of Homo 25 was displaced in the grave long after burial (see a) but originally the head was facing upwards; the skull of Homo 28 was ritually removed months or years after burial. Note the bright veneer inside the grave on the right, partially covered by green plants. (Credit: Photographs were taken by E. Gerstein. Digital figures were prepared by A. Regev.)

weltraumarchaeologie:
An diesem Fund sind einige Dinge bemerkesnwert, die hier nicht unerwähnt gelassen werden sollen. So steht in der Genises von Geschlechtern weit vor der Sintflut ohne das es wirkliche Zivilisationsspuren vorderen Orient gibt, die diesem Zeitraum vor der Sintflut eindeutig zuzuordnen sind.

Es gibt jedoch im See Genezareth einen monilithen Fund, der eine Besiedelung des Raumes vor der Sintflut belegt. Und auch dieses Grab, das hier so nett nachgemalt ist, weist genau darauf hin. Denn diese Art Beisetzung ist eindeutig zivilisiert geschehen, was auch immer zu dieser Art Grabführung geführt hat. Spaßig könnte man sagen, es sind Adam und Eva nach Ihrem Sünenfall hier gemeinsam zur Ruhe gebettet.
