An archaeologist found the fossil of an archaeologist looking for fossils
The discovery may reveal how the first archaeologists got extincted.
Spain.- An archaeologist has found today the fossil of another archaeologist looking for fossils during some digs made in a zone of high archaeological interest. According to the found rests, the found model of archaeologist seemed to walk with his body bent forward, and that’s why scientists believe that archaeologists didn’t start walking upright until at least 2 million years ago.
Gary Cockburn, the archaeologist that made the discovery, considers that the found archaeologist might have been looking for more archaeologists at the moment of his death, because he was found in a zone visited by a lot of archaeologists.
The responsible team of the dig have seemed very amazed after finding out that millions of years ago, they already looked for fossils in that zone. Also they seem to be very convinced that the found fossils will help them to better understand how the first archaeologists got extincted.
