EVIDENCE!

Evidence discovered by the palaeo-anthropology department at Wits University in South Africa show ‘without a doub’t that people in an area called Border Cave were using digging sticks weighted with perforated stones around 44,000 years ago.

The findings were published online in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Doctor Lucinda Backwell, senior researcher in in South Africa, said: ‘The dating and analysis of archaeological material discovered at Border Cave in South Africa has allowed us to demonstrate that many elements of material culture that characterise the lifestyle of San hunter-gatherers were part of the culture and technology of the inhabitants of this site 44,000 years ago.’

Located in the foothills of the Lebombo Mountains in KwaZulu-Natal, the site has yielded exceptionally well-preserved organic material.

 

 

This is a statue of Cro Magnon (in France). If ever you have the chance go and visit the caves to go and see his magnificent paintings.

Interesting little birds and when they build nest the ‘wife’ will unpick until she finds something to her liking.  But something very interesting which we experienced while we were having lunch at the West Coast restaurant (We went to see the Wildflowers). On the tables were those little envelopes with cane sugar (in white little bags) and artificial sweetener (in red little envelopes). Whilst these weavers were so furiously building nest they would swoop down and take an envelope to eat in the nest. And most of them took the RED envelopes with the artificial sweetener

Colour speaks!

Underneath the arches
I dream my dreams away
Underneath the arches
On cobblestones I lay
Every night you’ll find me
Tired out and worn
Happy when the daylight
Comes creeping
Heralding the dawn
