Archaeologists have unearthed several thousand-year-old bones that look like a young man and a dog who died in a tsunami. The Tira volcanic eruption between Greece and Turkey about 3,600 years ago was one of the most devastating natural disasters in human history. Archaeologists have unearthed some fossils after the eruption. NASA says that explosion, which is thousands of years old, is two million times more powerful than the Hiroshima atomic bomb.
According to the Daily Star, in 1600 BC, researchers reported that waves of fire engulfed countless lives. At that time it was difficult to count the corpses scattered on the ground. Wasif Sahoklu, an archaeologist at Anchor University, published his team’s findings in the western Turkish city of Cheshmeh. Scientists say the bloom coming out of the volcano could be seen by the Egyptians.
The bones of humans and dogs reveal many secrets
Archaeologists began excavating Cessmey a decade ago after builders reported that there were some Bronze Age ruins. Speaking to LiveScience, Sahoklu said the discovered human and dog bones would help us a lot. Now we can describe everything better. Experts say human bones were 17 years old when he was struck by a volcanic tsunami.
Man and dog are not together when they die
Although the remains of the dog were found in a 17-year-old man, archaeologist and senior co-author of the study, Beverly Goodman-Chernov, says there is nothing to suggest that the two were together at the time. Sahoklu said other scientific tests, including DNA analysis, would be conducted on the remains to better understand humans and dogs.
