Scrolls of Dead Sea
A huge ancient manuscripts collection had been found in some places along with the coast of the north-west coast. Studies show that this scroll is much older than the Old Testament manuscripts for 1,000 years. Because of these texts, the ancient time’s life has been known what it was actually like.
In the province of Shaanxi,a local farmer dug a well, then accidentally, in 1947, found thousands of statues of the army. A thousand soldiers of Terracotta rightly stood ahead of the great tomb of ‘Emperor Qin Shi Huang’ guarding it.
Some researchers considered that this form of sculpture had been a measure of the emperor’s humanism. This finding changes the historical record of the Emperor’s habits, who used to order for burying everything in which they thought that they really needed those for their eternity, including his army.
This finding is quite enriching prehistoric findings. Wilhelm Kattwinke, the German entomologist, discovered this archaeology in 1911. He discovered it when feeling down into it while he was catching up with a beautiful butterfly.
Wilhelm Kattwinkel has found three species that were separated from a hominin, including Homo habilis, Australopithecus, and also Homo erectus at the bottom of the abyss. The hipparion remains had also been found at this site.

An ancient human tooth and finger bone were found in the Denisova Cave near Biysk. Scientists argue that this archeology is more than 50,000 years old.
