1. Northern Europe:
When people think about archaeological finds, they usually imagine paleontologists digging up dinosaur bones in the desert. The truth, however, is much more fascinating, as scientists continue to find incredible things hiding in all sorts of locations. Archeologists have a really cool job. Some of the awesome things they’ve found were screaming mummies, the first leper and the Rosetta stone. We don’t often think about the wastes of human history we walk over every day. Hidden under the surface of the earth. Cast into northern European wetlands, bog bodies have long appeared as opaque to archaeologists as their dark and watery graves. Since the 18th century, the peat bogs of Northern Europe have yielded hundreds of human corpses dating from as far back as 8,000 B.C.
