Archaeologists in Israel have found the skeleton of a 6000-year-old baby girl from the ‘cave of death. This death cave is adjacent to the Dead Sea in the Judean Desert of Israel. This cave was renamed the ‘cave of death’ in the 1960s after getting around 40 hellholes. Researchers have found this baby skeleton naturally mummified in the dry atmosphere of the cave.
This skeleton can only be reached by climbing with the help of rope. A CT scan of the baby’s skeleton has revealed that it is between 6 and 12 years old. It is believed that it was a girl. His leather and hair are still partially intact even after 6000 years have passed. Israeli historian Ronit Lupu said that it was natural that whoever buried the girl was wrapped in cloth.
The world’s oldest basket was also found
Lupu said that it happens in the same way that the parents wrap their child in a blanket. The child also had some clothes tied in his hand. These skeletons are found near the catalog paper located in the Dead Sea. This list letter is the oldest letter written in the Hebrew language. Recently 2000-year-old catalog papers were found from here. According to NBC News, this list letter written in Hebrew was hidden during the revolt of the Jews against Rome.
The oldest basket of the world was also found in this area, which is about 10 thousand years old. Apart from this, arrow tip and coins were found from here which are believed to have belonged to the time of the Kochba revolution. Israeli authorities began digging in the area in 2017 after reports of loot here. Archaeologists are surprised at the discovery of a 6000-year-old mummy skeleton.
