Aryans: Sailing the Seas 12,000 Years Ago

Dramatic evidence of the age and extent of White civilization has been uncovered with the announcement that archaeologists have discovered what they believe is the earliest evidence yet of long distance seafaring in the eastern Mediterranean, undermining beliefs that ancient mariners never ventured into open seas.

Fragments of stone implements believed to be up to 12,000 years old have been found at two sites of Cyprus, suggesting roving mariners used the areas as temporary camp sites after forays from what is today Syria and Turkey.

The contrast with Africa – which did not have the wheel only 100 years ago – cannot be more vivid.

The flints are unlike anything found in the geological make-up of Cyprus, and more than 1,000 years older than the timing of the first permanent settlers to the island. The discovery adds to a body of evidence contradicting the widespread belief that ancient mariners would never venture out of sight of land or had limited navigational capabilities.

"If this is verified this would be the earliest evidence of seafaring in the East Mediterranean," said Pavlos Flourentzos, director of Cyprus's department of antiquities. Cyprus, lying at least 30 miles away from any other land mass, was not settled by man 12,000 years ago, but there is evidence it was populated by pygmy elephants and hippopotamuses.

Its earliest inhabitants, dated from the 9th millennium BC, are believed to be from the land mass which now rings it north and east.

Flint fragments were found at sites on the southeast and the west of the island by Albert J. Ammerman, an archaeologist at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York. The site on the southeast is a hilly outcrop overlooking Nissi Beach, one of the most popular beaches on the island.

"Its a rock where they now do bungee jumping," Flourentzos told Reuters. "Ammerman was with his children on this particular beach when he found the fragments."

The disclosures were contained in an archaeological paper Ammerman released at a conference in Philadelphia in the United States in mid-November. "They have yielded good evidence for the earliest voyaging in the Mediterranean and for the increased mobility of people at the end of the ice age and the beginning of agriculture," Ammerman said.

The archaeologist was assisted by Carole McCartney, a research fellow with the University of Cyprus, who has studied the flints and stone tools. Speaking to the Cyprus Mail, McCartney said these discoveries could mean that Cyprus was the first island colonised in the Mediterranean.

“We’re currently in a new chapter of understanding the colonisation of the island and these discoveries are sure to help us.”

Ammerman said the geology and the types of tools led his team to estimate that the seafarers from the mainland were camping in Cyprus sometime around 9,000 to 10,000BC. They stayed for a few nights each season, at most a few weeks, and returned to the mainland. The archaeologists inferred the seasonal nature of the visits because the sites were on the coasts, with no sign of a human presence inland.

"These were not colonisers," Ammerman said of these camping seafarers. "There was no island society as such, no native people yet, and these visitors had a very limited existence."

Loin de moi cette idée d'europe du sud.

Oui mais cet article en le relisant semble quand même très douteux...
