The bodies of three infants have been uncovered by anthropologists in eastern Austria. The infants were buried by hunter/gatherers about 27,000 years ago.
  Two of them appear to be twins because their leg bones are the same length. The bodies are unusual because
they are adorned with beads which makes this the oldest evidence of the decoration of infants in the human fossil record. This indicates a shift to a more modern social behavior in this Stone Age culture.—From ScienceNow.sciencemag.org

Ancient dwellings found near Stonehenge

A number of dwellings have been found near Stonehenge. Archaeologists are assuming that they housed the buiders of the great circle of stones that have made Stonehenge famous. Evidence indicates that the dwellings go back 4,600 years. The dwellings are about a mile from the stone circle. It is believed that more of these dwellings will eventually be found.
