13,300 year old spear made of woolly rhinoceros horn found on Arctic island


This article was published in the Siberian Times.

Discovery means Paleolithic man penetrated hundreds of miles further north than previously understood.

Studies on the intriguing rhino spear are still ongoing but this remarkable find – seen as having considerable archeological significance – was shown to Vladimir Putin on his recent visit to Yakutsk, capital of the Sakha Republic.

The spear tip, almost 90cm in length and seemingly still sharp enough to kill, was found on the island of Bolshoy Lyakhovsky, off the northern coast of Siberia, as researchers hunted for remains of woolly mammoths.

‘This year we found a spear made of woolly rhino horn and if all the information is confirmed, it will be the northernmost point where a human implement was found – three degrees latitude further north than we had known before,’ explained Semyon Grigoryev, Director of the Lazarev Mammoth Museum at Northeastern Federal University.

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth.

Available in both hard copy and Ebook format.
