Archaeologists led by Dr. Matti Barica, Mn University of Zadar in CroatiaThey made an amazing discovery at the bottom of the river seaWhere they were found under several layers of mud a A road built about 7,000 years ago.
The old way Solin connected to the island of Korcula It may have been in use 7,000 years ago. Like the rest of the settlement, the paved walkway Experts explained that it has survived for thousands of years thanks to the fact that the Croatian coast is dotted with islands that protect the area from big waves.
According to radiocarbon analyzes they performed on the wood samples found, the Solin settlement dates back to approximately 4900 BC (B.C.E).
The road is about 4 meters wide Stone slabs neatly stacked one on top of the other. Thought it was work Hvar culturewhich occupied that area during the Neolithic period.
The discovery was made possible thanks to the collaboration of experts from the Museums of Dubrovnik, Kaštela City Museum, University of Zadar and Korcula City Museum with the help of photographers and divers.

During the expeditions, another underwater settlement was discovered on the other side of the island. Blades, stone axes, and fragments of millstones have been recovered from there, which helps to understand what these settlements were like.
Research director Igor Burzy found “strange structures in the sea” in that area. The Solin locality’s archaeological diving team conducted an inspection of the central part of the Gulf of Gradina, and to everyone’s delight it was determined that, at a depth of 4 to 5 metres, the existence of a settlement almost identical to that of Solin. set by the University of Zadar.
An impressive discovery in Australia: they found fossils of a huge extinct eagle that could hunt kangaroos
A group of scientists made an amazing and valuable discovery in South Australia. It’s the fossil remains of Extinct huge eagle who inhabited the peripheral state a few years ago 60 thousand years Thanks to its power 30 cm clawsHe was able to hunt animals the size of a kangaroo.
The cave where they found dry vulture fossils.
Connection Dry eagle With a wingspan of three metres, it was easily able to catch “a small-sized kangaroo, a large flightless bird, or other species of megafauna lost at the time,” said the paleontologist. Trevor Worthya prehistoric expert and scientific expedition leader at Flinders University.
Specialists at that university center, who linked the dry vulture to Old World vultures and the Philippine vulture, which eats monkeys and is in danger of extinction, consider it to be the largest bird of prey in the continental region. And potentially The largest continental eagle in the world.
This extinct specimen was “roughly the size of the world’s largest vultures found on the islands of New Zealand and Cuba, including the extinct 13-kilogram New Zealand Haast’s vulture”.

The prehistoric vulture remains, named after Australian paleontologist Priscilla Jaffe, who first described these fossils in her master’s thesis in 2022, were examined with other historical fossils found elsewhere in Australia from more than half a century ago.
