XaW Files: Beyond Humanity started with the greenYgrey fantasy travelling across Siberia. It missed Novisibirsk out, disappearing from a Wombles-inspired Tomsk tale episode east of Novisibirsk to emerge west of it in an Omsk blog inspired by T-time wordplay and a street sculpture of a plumber.
Bracelet 40,000 Years Old?
Archaeology.com have a story I first saw on Facebook, that a bracelet found in the Novisibirsk region has been dated with oxygen isotopic analysis as 40,000 years old. Moreover, its description provides evidence of prehistoric greenYgreying:
“The bracelet is stunning—in bright sunlight it reflects the sun’s rays, at night by the fire it casts a deep shade of green,”
The bracelet could be evidence of skills in “techniques previously considered not characteristic for the Palaeolithic era, such as easel speed drilling, boring tool type rasp, grinding and polishing with a leather and skins of varying degrees of tanning.”
The Paleolithic Age stretched from 2.6 million years ago to the Neolithic 10,000 years ago. There’s probably lots more evidence buried around the world, and it just needs the time, effort, money and luck to find and analyse it.
There is artistic license evidence that the world contained a mixture of greenYgrey and POP (PinkyOrangePurple) life all those years ago in this image on the Wikipedia Paleolithic page:
