Palaeolithic burial reveals amazing grave good interred

Could this be an ancient ritual hitherto unknown to archaeology and science?

Could this be an ancient ritual hitherto unknown to archaeology and science?

The University of Lewisham’s department of physical anthropology and archaeology (Marsala campus) in Great Britain has just published the following from a recent excavation in the south London neighbourhood.

In a statement released today, a department spokesperson says this remarkable find, which has yet to be exactly dated by radiocarbon or dendo-chronology, but is reliably believed to be from a period approximate to that of Stonehenge, cannot be explained. The Rocket Ship artefact, made of polished and coloured bone, possible antler, was found in-situ and is contemporaneous with the other grave goods, including a highly decorated necklace of sea-shell from the Mediterranean.

The female figure, the spokesperson continues, may be presumed to come from an elite class hitherto unknown in the archaeological literature. ‘Perhaps what we are witnessing,’ the spokesperson continues, ‘is evidence of an extra-terrestial contact, or, more likely, some form of ritual associated with a cult that used the rocket (or phallus) as its totem.’
