Harajuku

Harajuku (原宿?) Is a popular designation for the area around JR Harajuku, Shibuya District, Tokyo. This area is famous as a place young people gather. The location covers around the Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi Park, shopping centers Takeshita Street (Takeshita-dōri), the department store Laforet, and the Yoyogi National Gymnasium. Harajuku is not an official designation for the name of the place, and are not included when writing the address.
Around the 1980s, Harajuku is home to a subculture Takenoko-zoku. To this day, groups of young people dressed in weird can be found in the area of Harajuku. In addition, school children from different corners of Harajuku in Japan often put as an objective study tour during a visit to Tokyo.Actually the term "Harajuku" is used only for the area north of Omotesando. Onden is the name of the area south of Omotesando, but the name was not popular and is called Harajuku participate.

Glodok fish..

At first glance, many people will think that if this creature is a type of frogs ... But the truth is they are the types of fish, which many found in mangrove forests. Despite their long-only range of 12 cm and its color and hue they are not as beautiful as Nemo, but they have many advantages not shared by other fish. They can climb trees, take a walk in the mud, and they can stay alive even though not in the water. How might have fish that can live on land? This fish when the water will use their gills to breathe, and if want to go to the mainland they will develop their gills, and will be filled with oxygen and water as much as possible. Oxygen will maketh provision for not being in the water, and they also must be able to keep their gills and throat to keep it moist. And another thing, they can also breathe with their skin while in the mainland. Fantastic ....
Look,,, their pectoral fin, very like the shape of the foot. With fins closely resembles the foot of this, they walk on land / sand. Each time running, they will throw their bodies that will be followed by the rear of their bodies. Palmyra power they can leap up to 60 cm away .. When will climb a rock or a tree, they will rear their fins clamped, glued in place to climb by them. This type of fish is not a good swimmer, and they prefer to walk or even jump, to adjourn.
Glodok fish (a fish names), also an expert in digging holes. They dig holes with their mouths. So if the water is being put, they will soak in the hole. And if the water was receding, they will leave a hole for a walk and look for prey. So they dug holes in fact, they made like a home for them. Hole will be dug by the male which will also be used by the females for breeding, and also shy away from danger.
Their eyes are prominent also have the privilege ... Both their eyes were like a periscope, which can rotate in all directions. Even their eyes that can move independently. If one was looking towards the left, at the same time which can be seen towards the right side. Their diet consists of small algae, small fish, small shrimp, small worms, and also sometimes they can eat crab that has a hard shell leather .....

Buddhist fingers orange


Buddhist fingers orange is one member of the family Rutaceae. This orange has the Latin name Citrus medica, which features exactly the same as orange but there is a difference of this orange, they have the pieces that make up the finger and if the old will change color to yellow.


China people also often use them as room fragrances, for sweets, seasoning mix and others. What is certain is widely used for the drug. Namely, thinly sliced orange and then dried without sunlight and then boiled. Cooking water was later taken to heal stomach ulcers, digestion and colds earlier. Even the buds of leaves and seeds is very effective for deworming disease.

Mayan Crystal Skulls


Actually, there is one interesting thing is what I will describe the relationship Mayan calendar with their cultural relics others, namely Mayan Crystal Skulls. But this time, I just wanted to invite all friends to reflect on one thing about this crystal skull ............ Crytal Skull is one of the relics of Mayan artifacts most phenomenal after the Mayan Calendar.
Narrated, when at the time of the past two advanced civilization, Atlantis and Lemuria destroyed by the disaster struck a very intense, there is at least 13 crystal skulls left by the Atlanteans to the derivatives, which survivors of the disaster. The derivatives, which have survived are none other than the Mayan own. As stated by many historians, Maya is derived from The Atlanteans who survived the disaster and re-create one milestone in their place a new civilization managed to save themselves (Regions Mesoamerica / Latin America). Now, the 13 Crystal skulls have been many who disappeared, may have been scattered in various regions of the world. However, there is a great secret hidden in the 13 skulls these crystals. According to some stories that are written sheets to the Mayan civilization humans, if the 13 crystal skulls are combined together, these skulls could have revealed information about our origins and how to avoid disasters in the future. Their ancestors can make them talk, and their jaws can be moved. Now, let us escape from the legend above, Now we're talking about the mystery of the Crystal Skulls others, namely, how to explain, how human civilization past carve these skulls to form a very detailed and perfect? We need to know, using today's equipment is sophisticated and versatile modern, approximately one year required for carved. Not to mention, probably the result of his sculptures are not as perfect as some of the Crystal Skulls original, whether it is the form of it sculptures as well as characteristics that can withstand the shock-shock and geothermal. Then what kind of technology they use to create a masterpiece that is priceless? That is one question that is still difficult to be explained by Scientists until now, what hope do we know that the crystal is a type of characteristics symmetric molecular structure of minerals with a very perfect, so the slightest mistake in cutting and carving against this axis, then the crystal will be destroyed. It's very complicated, although done with highly sophisticated technology.

Art and matchstick

This is the artwork of matchstick ....... Fantastic works of art that deserves to be holding up two thumbs up









 

The discovery of Dr. Takeshi Yamada's The World appalling

Dr. Takeshi Yamada, a Japanese researcher, who conducted the study, a trip that might have surrounded some of the world, find the 10 creatures that stir strange world of science.Okay, we'll see about all the bizarre inventions of the Dr Takeshi Yamada:
One of them is a vampire monkey in China. As we know about vampire, this vampire monkey life, depending on other blood sucking creatures.
The uniqueness of this creature is, most are active in many activities to use his hands like us humans. And this species, believed to be disconnected from the chain of human evolution that is shaped like now. The uniqueness of others, this creature in the same building as a bird nest, with how to weave its web.




Next, the findings of Dr. Takeshi Yamada others, which is not less horrendous giant snails were found by Dr. Takeshi Yamada of the deepest sea. Leg snail-like Chupacabra, therefore given the name Chupacabras Snail.


The next discovery, the largest meat-eating snails in this world. Found in early 2007. And snails also have a deadly weapon, which is toxic, highly lethal.


No less terrible are, blue Merman found on Sado Island. Similar species of lizard or chameleon. This creature is also dangerous on its hands that could expand. When age increases, this star would look like a frog.
  


This two-faced baby mummy is now in the museum of medicine at Coney Island Hospital.


Then, the discovery of a giant sea dragon. Called the giant sea dragon, found in the seabed Awaji Island. This creature is alleged to have become extinct in the early 20th century.
  

Two new species of horseshoe crabs, is presumed living prehistoric period around 400 million years ago. Recently crabs are caught by a team of researchers from the University of seabed Higashi Osaka, Japan. Still there are four species of horseshoe crabs are identical to those living 250 million years ago.


The discovery this time is not less strange, human-faced ant. In Indian mythology, believed to be reincarnated ill-natured people into ants. There are lots of ants with a human face found in India more than any other country. One example is owned by Dr. Takeshi Yamada, which is the result of the expedition in 2004. Coney Island Anthropoliogical Institute also has this collection. 
  


Creature is derived from St. Helena, is alleged to have gone extinct in a few decades ago, allegedly due to the construction of international airport there. Association of Scientists and entomologists observers protested in recent years that caused the extinction of this species. The study, led by Dr. Takeshi Yamada in 2005 to find some new species of giant earwigs. The research is part of the programs at the Coney Island University.


Fiji Mermaid long as six feet mermaid found in Shikoku, Japan. Ningyo called Shinko. Many Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples perpetuate this mermaid as a sacred creature. People come to pray at these places every day.

Crop Circle

This mysterious circle, is called Crop Circle ......... Crop circle found in farm fields. For example in the fields of wheat, tobacco and other kinds of fields. Usually found at the time of the harvest season, ie April to September. Crop circle found in England very much, which is in Hampshire and Wiltshire. There is also found in the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, India and other countries.
Crop circle appeared since the 1600s. But new research since the 1980s ... Initially, crop circle just circular course. There are large and small circles. Then, the circles form a certain pattern. Then in the 1990s, crop circles increasingly diverse and complex. For example the symbols of the Aztec.
The size of this crop circle is very big,,, a dozen to tens of meters. Therefore, only seen from the sky. Wow,,, would make it a long time. Well, that's the mystery ... The farmers and eyewitnesses said, a day earlier, the circle does not exist. But the next day .... ting,,, the rings were there!
How does the origin of this crop circle? There is a guess, if the harvest cycle, created by aliens. It was seen from its form, similar traces spacecraft landed. There is also a saying, crop circle is a natural phenomenon. For example, the vortex of winds that bend the plant so as to form a specific pattern. Perhaps also, there is strong energy emanating from the earth in the soil, namely heat and magnetic energy.
Apparently,,, there are people who claim to make crop circles. They made it just for the fun of it .. fantastic! Two people could make hundreds of crop circles. Crop circle makers deliberately made at night, so as not to be seen by people. Then, they walked in the path of the tractor, so that their footprints are not lasting. A major UK TV station, had asked them to practice how to make crop circles. Currently, many companies are asking them to create a company logo on the farm. Eg Hello Kitty logo.
Maybe people can make a circle of harvest, but there is also expected that was not created by human ... mysterious!

Tinamaou

Tinamaou is one of the animal groups of birds that reside in these forests, shrubs, and grasslands in southern Mexico to southern Argentina.There are more than 30 types tinamaou, and everything is included in group Tinamiformes Tinamigae family. Tinamaou shape is very confusing, because someone said that they form as quail, partridge and grouse. There are even some who say they resemble a form of ostrich, like Rhea of South America.
But their bodies are certainly small, beak that can cut very deep, small and rounded wings. Their body length ranges from 20-53 cm, with short legs and tail. Color of their feathers are mostly brown and gray and decorated with scribbled complexion or freckles.
Nest for the children they are made of tree twigs are ground and made very strong so that their children safe. Their eggs have a variety of colors, there are green, yellow, blue or brown purplefish. Usually the eggs are removed ranged from 1 to 10 seeds. And that incubating the eggs is the duty of the male tinamaou ..........
Tinamaou very seldom run or fly to avoid danger ... most of them bow body (away from danger), because when running or flying,,, they will very easily tired ...

The human tortoise

A child from China, Maimaiti Hali have suffered for years due to physical abnormalities which he suffered. At back, grow cells hard leather bigger, until shaped like shell.
Not only physical pain who he anguish, but also psychological because people taunting as tortoise. Not infrequently, Maimati be the object of delinquency friends. But life Maimaiti will immediately changed. Operation two hours in Hospital Military Provincial Xinjiang, China, succeeded lifted 'shell' at back.
The father, Maimaiti Musai admitted pleased with the results of the operation. Actually, the family hopes the operation can be done for a long time. But, "we notified, impossible doing operating because he still small. But shell his back grown and become large, like eggshell turtles, "he's said. Like a loaded page Daily Telegraph, June 2, 2010. "People always taunting - we want immediately terminate anguish psychological our child," added he.
Head team physician who operated on Maimaiti, Ye Xiangpo say, skin removed from his back Maimaiti thick like leather bull. To replace skin that was taken, doctors transplant skin of the head and hands Maimaiti. "Skin head can grow very quickly. We hope he can recover fully, "he said.
Meanwhile, Maimaiti Hali admitted happy misery has been lifted. "It hurts really, but a little. The important thing is I'm not worried about being ridiculed my friends again, "he said.
"I can not wait, playing without having to wear a T-shirt, also swam naked with my friends." I hope all goes well ..

Lion masseur

Alex,,, is a man who has a very strange hobby ...Was it his hobby? Massaging the Jungle King (lion) in Lion Park, South Africa ............As seen in the picture, how Alex is doing his hobby is to a lion named Jamu (9 years old).
"The lion is also actually very fond of this ritual (as in tickling)", says the man who immigrated from Africa to Oxfordshire's. True, Jamu looks quite enjoy the ritual. Not infrequently also with hairy animal that brake literacy because preoccupation.
According to the animal keepers, having contact with wild animals the key is trust and confidence. He also added that if the proximity with wild animals that can not necessarily be in it.
He needs time to be close very intimate. According to whether the animals could sense an approaching object was to threaten them or not.
"They're pleased tickled and delighted in scratching. This is the best game they love, "he said.

Crackling sounds of Saturn's rings


Indeed so many undiscovered secrets in the universe, rarity, etc.. What is the latest NASA spacecraft, Cassini is expected to record a horrible sound coming from Saturn's rings. This voice is not a hoax, but the official release from NASA. This sound is produced by something called Saturn kilometric radation generated along with Saturn's aurora. Cassini Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) took high-resolution wave frequency that enables to convert radio waves into audio recordings by shifting the frequency range as well as on the radio that we have is from the radio waves is translated into sound.

The smallest orchid

The smallest orchid in the world with only 2.1 mm wide, petals transparent and one cell thick. These orchids of the genus Platystele types, most of which are made as miniature plants.
American scientists discovered a super-small flowers that, by coincidence between the sidelines of the roots of plants he had collected from nature reserves in the Andes east of Cerro Candelaria.
He said: "I saw on the sidelines of the roots are small plants which I know is more attractive than other large orchids."
'By considering the interest is often the best way to identify different species of orchids that you observe, and be able to recognize whether you're observing a species not known or not. "
As reported the Daily Mail, this is the discovery of new orchid species to 60 from Dr. Jost in the last ten years.
He worked at the Institute EcoMinga Ecuador, as a provider in partnership with the World Land Trust in England.
"It's nice to be able to find this new species," he said.
'People think all the species have been found but in fact there are many more that must be explored. "
More than 1000 species of orchids have been found in South America in the last 100 years, since a number of new roads have been opened in remote areas.
The discovery of Dr. Jost's most impressive is, a group of 28 species of orchids teagueia genus in the mountainous region near Banos, Ecuador.
The group had previously estimated that only six species. (Erabaru / Daily Mail / voice)

Super Mushroom

The Mexicans seem to have a special secret to maintain a giant mushroom, or maybe just because of good growing conditions of land, or just luck just get this big super mushroom. This fungus is found on a coffee farm in Chiapas, Mexico in June 2007. Two feet in length with a weight of 44 Ponds, this is more big of a boy.
A Mexican biology expert Rene Andrade took this picture on a coffee farm in Mexico also. This makes enthusiasts Czech Republic-home enthusiasts on an expedition to Central American states to do research.
If in Indonesia, can be planted this giant mushroom? Since when can be planted in Indonesia, which has many tropical forests, will add an asset for our country .....

Elysia Chlorotica

Apparently this sea snail's first creature whose body was half the flora, fauna and a half. The reason is that these newly discovered snail can produce pigment chlorophyll like plants. Scientists estimate this cleverly stealing snail genes from the algae they eat so they can produce chlorophyll. With the stolen genes they can photosynthesise, that is the process plants to convert sunlight into energy.
"These animals can make molecules contain energy without eating anything," said Sydney Pierce, an expert in biology from the University of South Florida in Tampa. Pierce has been studying these unique creatures, which have been officially named Elysia chlorotica, over 20 years.
He submitted its latest findings on January 7, 2010, at the annual meeting of the Community Integrative and Comparative Biology in Seattle. This finding was first reported by the journal Science. "This is the first multicellular animals may produce chlorophyll," said Pierce.
These sea slugs live in salt water marshes in New England, Canada. In addition to stealing the gene to produce the green pigment chlorophyll, these animals also stole a small parts of cells called chloroplasts, which are used to perform photosynthesis. Chloroplasts using chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, like plants, so these animals do not need to eat to get energy.







"We collect a number of these animals and save them in an aquarium for months," Pierce said, "As long as they are given light for 12 hours a day, they can survive (without meals)."
The investigators used a radioactive tracer to ensure that these snails actually produce chlorophyll, and not a pigment that has been stolen from the alga. In fact, the snails is to integrate genetic material with so perfect that can be derived in the next generation.
The children of the snails that have been stealing the gene itself can also produce chlorophyll, though they can not eat enough photosynthesise before they could steal enough algae to the chloroplast. So far it has not been able to chloroplast their own production. The success of the snails was amazing, and scientists are still uncertain how this animal could choose genes that they need.
"Maybe just the DNA from one species could get into other species, as has been evidenced by this snail species. But the mechanism is still unknown," said Pierce.

Udumbara Flower





Udumbara legendary flower that is believed to grow Buddhists once every 3000 years found growing in the courtyard of the Radio Erabaru, Smiling Hill area, Batam. Small white flowers that grow in water guava tree leaves.This flower can grow in various media, such as leaves, stones, steel, glass, boards, iron, copper and others. (Tianfu Kwok)Flowers are small Udumbara less than 0.5 cm, thinner and more delicate than human hair. (Tianfu Kwok)
3000 years? That is a very long time .....





Nepenthes Attenboroughii

Scientists have discovered a flesh-eating plant so big that it can swallow and devour a whole rat! This new species is called Nepenthes Attenboroughii, it has been named after British nature expert Sir David Attenborugh.

This plant, which is a member of the pitcher family can grow more than 4-foot long. That's actually one of the biggest carnivorous plants discovered yet. Those plants produce big pitchers which are filled with water and they also secrete nectar that attracts insects and rodents. Once those poor creatures fall in, they cannot escape and end up drowning, and then, the acids and enzymes do their job. Generally, only the bones of the prey remain.

Water Lilies/Nymphaea lotus

Most small lotus flower in the world, which is known to have disappeared from their habitats in Africa, was saved from extinction. Experts from the Royal Botanical Gardens Royal Botanical Gardens Kew or Kew, England, are seedling of the lotus flower.Plants are very small - just one centimeter in diameter - known as water lilies that "bloody hot". Latin Name Nymphaea lotus is the smallest thermarum. Flowers that grow in fresh water in the spring.
Lotus flower was first discovered in 1985 in Mashyuza, Rwanda. Two years ago, the interest disappears when the water is there used for agriculture.
Professor Eberhard Fischer, who discovered this species of Nymphaea thermarum sent some specimens to the Bonn Botanic Gardens, a horticultural research center.The seeds were then treated with caution and sent to the Royal Botanical Gardens Kew and was initially grown as other lotus plants, submerged in the water but fail to grow and develop.
But after several trials with various conditions, horticultural experts, Carlos Magdalena, finally solved the mystery of how to make a small lotus, so they can grow.

The most Deadliest caterpillar

In the southern Brazilian rain forest, there Lonomia worm - dubbed the clown "lazy" from the world of insects. Unfortunately, like "The Joker" from the Batman series, there's nothing funny about this worm. Simply brush your hand against the creature's fur thorn, can cause massive internal bleeding, kidney failure, and hemolysis.In other words, touching at the same time (as is common) is the same with death. Even worse, caterpillars are considered "vague" and easy to blend with tree bark. So even if you're trying to find them, you may not see this malicious worm. In fact, there are several deaths each year caused by Lonomia.Even more amazing was that the toxic dose of "the lowest median lethal" poison in the world - that only a small per-minute than the bite Lonomia had a dose of lethal toxin 1000 times more powerful than snake bites .... If there is one point bright, it appears that Lonomia only for two-three months every year. I can not find - so do not touch anything in the South Brazilian caterpillar ..........!!

Mauro Prosperi


Prosperi, a marathon runner des Sables in 1994 in Morocco. After the past six days and 233 kilometers distance desert storm caused Prosperi to lose the road. Finally, he was confused and ran in the wrong direction, ultimately running several hundred kilometers to Algeria. After 36 hours he ran out of food and water. He survived by drinking his own urine and eating bats that live in a mosque that had been abandoned and sometimes snakes found in the desert. Do not want to die in the desert, he tried to commit suicide at the mosque by slitting his wrists with a small knife he had. His efforts failed because of lack of water that causes blood to thicken and clotted before he died.
After nine days alone in the desert, he was discovered by a nomadic family and taken to an Algerian military camp and from there taken to the hospital. He has lost 186 miles of the route marathonnya, and is reported to have lost around 30-40 pounds of body weight.

Aron Ralston

In May 2003, Aron Ralston when he was on the way Blu canyoneering John Canyon, a boulder fell and pressed his right arm and breaking his arm. After trying for five days, lifting and breaking the stone, made the decision to carve his name, date of birth and death dates on the stone, drank his own urine because of lack of water and record video farewell to his family.
Finally after a dehydrated and delirious, he decided to bow his arm against the insistence of stone and broke the radius and ulna bones. Using a blunt knife on multiuse tool, he cut the soft tissue surrounding a broken arm. He then used the pliers to cut the tendons that hard. After Ralston was saved, his arm was retrieved by park authorities and removed from under the rock. Cremated and given to Ralston. He returned to rock and ashes sprinkled there.

Joe Simpson


Joe Simpson and Simon Yates were the first person who successfully climbed the peak of Siula Grande, in the mountains of the Andes, Peru. The disaster happened on the way down, and Yates was forced to let Simpson who was badly injured falling 100 feet into an ice chasm. Simpson survived the fall and spent three days to crawl back into the main tent.

Andes Survivors

On Friday, October 13, 1972, a Uruguayan air force flew over the Andes carrying Stella Maris College Rugby team from Monteviseo, Uruguay. To play a match in Santiago, Chile. When peswat it flew through the gap in pegungungan, air monitoring in Santiago told the pilot that the aircraft is above the Curico, Chile and fatherly allowed to land. This proved to be a fatal mistake. Because the gap is covered by clouds, the pilot must rely on the usual time required to traverse the mountain. But they failed to take into account the strong winds which in turn slow the aircraft and increase the time required to cross the mountains.
As a result, deflection and a decrease in aircraft that are too fast before the plane managed to cross the mountains. Twelve people were killed in the accident. The people who survived not only have to hunger and face the daunting mountains but also the temperature of -30 degrees when the evenings. They survive on food reserves they had until they were rescued. But they lose hope when they heard that the search had been halted on the radio.
Despair with the lack of food and physical fatigue they were forced to eat their own colleague who had died to stay alive. Finally after bored with very low temperatures and the threat of landslides and saddened by the death of their partner and the bad rescue prospects, two of them decided to cross the mountains to reach Chile. On December 22, 1972, after 72 days isolation, the world knows that there are 16 people who survived in the Andes mountains.

Lucky Man

Frane Selak, Escaped from a train wreck of an open sliding door of the plane, bus collision, the burning car fire, two other car accidents, then wins lottery millions of dollars. Luck is always there by his side or vice versa for Croatian music teacher Frane Selak (born 1929), renowned throughout the world due to escape from the many fatal accidents. The first is his near-death experiences with cold starts in January 1962, when it is in train to train DuBovnik suddenly slipped into the cold river killing 17 passengers. He managed to escape with a broken arm, a little scratches and bruises.
A year later, Selak flew from Zagreb to Rijeka, when suddenly the wind blew from the aircraft cockpit, and fly the aircraft door, he fell from the plane. The accident killed 19 people, but Selak was lucky to land in a pile of hay and woke up several days later in hospital view minor injuries. In 1966, he had an accident while traveling in three buses an accident and falls into a river. There were four people killed. Surprisingly, Selak again escaped unscathed. In 1970, Selak driving the car when his car suddenly caught fire. Another lucky he managed to leave the car before the fuel tank exploded. Three years later the Selak car returned fire, fire that had blown from the air vents. This is the most severe anxiety, he lost most of his hair. In 1995, Selak was in Zagreb when he was hit by a bus, again without leaving anything except minor injuries. The next year when he drove through a mountain road, crashed into Selak guardrail  to avoid a truck that came and landed in a tree and his car exploded 300 feet below it. In a surprising turn of events in 2003, winning the million dollar lottery bolt Croatian.

Vesna Vulvonic

On January 26, 1972, a Yugoslav Airlines DC-9 departed dai Beogard Copenhagen with 28 passengers and crew. At an altitude of 33 000 feet, found a bomb in the cargo section planted by separatist groups Ustashe Croatia and exploded. Aircraft destroyed and crashed in the mountains. And that became the phenomenal story of all time, stewardess Vesna Vulovic safely from a height of 33 000 feet by sitting on the tail.
Vulovic 22-year-old should not even exist on that plane. When she was in an interview, she said it was Vesna others who should be on the plane, but she's happy and mixed feelings because it is allowed to make her first trip to the Danish. Since the incident she suffered a fractured skull injury with two broken legs and three broken vertebrae, one of which destroyed her paralyzed from the waist to bottom.Vulovic spent several months in and out of hospitals and operations that enable them to walk again. She became a celebrity when the Guinness Book of World Records invited to a ceremony in London with Paul McCartney. She is listed as being able to survive the fall without a parachute.

Oldest on Earth Shoes

Approximately 5500 years ago someone in the mountains of Armenia have been wearing footwear which is now the oldest leather shoes ever found on earth.
Footwear is well maintained it is made from one part of the
leather, which tied a rope front and back, according to researchers who reported in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS One.
Shoe for right foot was found in a cave along with other evidence of human occupation. Shoes were filled with grass, which originated from the same period with the leather-between 5637 and 5387 years ago.
"This is a great fortune," said Ron Pinhasi archaeologist from University College Cork in Cork, Ireland, which led the research team. "We usually just find the pot is broken, but we have little information about the daily activities of ancient people"
"What do they eat? What are they doing? What are they wearing? This is an opportunity to know and give us a real glimpse of the community, "he said. Previously, the oldest leather shoes found in Europe or Asia is stuck in Otzi "ice man" found in the famous frozen in the Alps a few years ago and is now preserved in Italy.
Otzi lived 5375 and 5128 years ago, a few hundred years newer than the shoe of Armenia. Otzi shoes made of deer and bear skins held together with leather straps. Shoes Armenia appeared to be made from cowhide, Pinhasi said.
Ancient sandal found in a cave in Missouri, but is made of fiber, not the
leather.
