On the first day a human skeleton belonging to a man in his thirties was uncovered showing signs of severe injuries.
The skeleton, which had several unusual physical features, most notably a severe curvature of the back, was exhumed to allow scientific analysis.
A fossil can be studied to determine what kind of organism it represents, how the organism lived, and how it was preserved.
However, by itself a fossil has little meaning unless it is placed within some context.
It was identified as the world's oldest marijuana stash.And indeed, antibodies specific to PHEX detected this unique bone protein.They try to solve this problem by proposing that bone protects the cells from bacteria that cause degradation.A barrage of tests proves that the marijuana possessed potent psychoactive properties and casts doubt on the theory that the ancients only grew the plant for hemp in order to make clothing, rope, and other objects. Lead author Ethan Russo told Discovery News that the marijuana "is quite similar" to what's grown today.(Source) In 2007, a 5,000-year-old piece of chewing gum, the oldest ever discovered, was found by a British archaeology student in Finland.These changes typically occur so slowly that they are barely detectable over the span of a human life, yet even at this instant, the Earth's surface is moving and changing.
