Marine fossils

êèå ëèëèè), ðàêóøêèSpecial containment procedures: SCP-477 must be in the building with climate control, labelled as Area 44. The building was built using only metal and wood, no stone or concrete building materials. Externally it looks like a hangar for storage of equipment non-existent career, but in fact there are numerous laboratories, which are essential for learning and maintenance of SCP-477. Samples of sedimentary rocks or concrete items allowed to be taken out for limits of complex content, only after grinding and mixing with acidic clay slurry to dissolve the entire fossil material was found.

Individuals of SCP-477, appeared outside the Zone 44 must be immediately captured and returned to the complex, or destroyed by shredding and acid treatment of the substrate carrier.

Description: a Thin layer of Cambrian slate, covering an area of about 2 km2 on the plateau, Mongolia. Deposits rich in fossils preserved in water, collectively designated as SCP-477. These fossils are remarkable for both its diversity and the fact that they are able to move and imitate life, floating in the thick stone as if it was the ocean that they lived 520 million years ago.

Individuals of SCP-477 are able to move through all tested types of sedimentary rocks, with no visible resistance. In atomistic main threat to the successful maintenance, as the revived fossil escaped into another geological formation that is very difficult to catch (not eliminated, and reproduction of escaped, see the incident 477-01). They are unable to leave their stone habitats for the movement in an aqueous or gaseous medium and can’t pass through soil, sand, clay and other porous substrates. Continue reading

In Siberia have unearthed an ancient settlement at the age of 6 thousand years!

In Krasnoyarsk region have found traces of Neolithic settlements. Her age — 6 thousand years. Scientists suggest that here was located one of the first metallurgical production. Traces of ancient civilization discovered during the laying of power lines in Kezhemsk district, Krasnoyarsk territory. “Archaeological object was found in the area where was going to start work on laying of transmission lines from Boguchanskaya HPP to the village Tayshet”, — told in the press service of the SFU. Explore the find invited students and teachers of historical-philosophical faculty, and staff of the laboratory of archeology, Ethnography and history of Siberia Institute for the Humanities, SFU. Specialists have found that the age of the settlement, which was called “the Parking lot Itomura” (named after the closest Creek), — about 6 thousand years.

In total, the excavation found about 9 thousand of artifacts of different eras: the early iron age, the bronze age and the last stage of the stone age. Among the artifacts included iron arrowheads, knives, namesnik harness deer, stone hammers, teachnique, anvils and fragments of pottery. In addition, the excavations also produced samples of charcoal and soil from the cultural layers, hearths, vessels and ancient economic holes. Scientists believe that in ancient times there were engaged in metallurgy.

The layer of earth in which hranitelnitsa the number of artifacts that dates back to the early Neolithic period in Siberia it started about 6.5 million years ago.

In the Azov district, archaeologists discovered an ancient port city

Perhaps in a short time on excavations in the village of don, the Azov area are detected unusual underwater finds. At the mouth of the don river, archaeologists found, presumably, the ancient Greek port city. Flooded stone walls and artifacts, which the waves carried to the shore, and geophysical exploration of seabed, scientists incline towards valuable discoveries. Today, specialists carry out underwater exploration.

Farm herd often comes to this place, while on the island don in the water around the mouth of the don. It turned out that horses resting at the walls of the ancient port city, which lies right beside their hooves under the water and sand. Scientists suggest that even in the fourth century BC on this place lived the ancient Greeks, the contemporaries of Alexander the great and Aristotle.

“Through this territory, we held a major trade route. He went out in the sea of Azov and ran next to the Taman Peninsula in the Crimea, where the main Greek trading post”, — explains senior researcher of the southern scientific center of Russian Academy of Sciences Irina Tolochko.

The sea of Azov to the ancient Greeks, as for us, Siberia, seemed a harsh edge. Came here the most enterprising and adventurous Hellenes. They arrived Sudas sole purpose is to trade and earn. When it is in this deep place, from century to century were moored large ships loaded, and from here on small boats, the goods were transported to markets, for example, in Azak, modern basics.
