"Tra Terra e Cielo"
The Ġgantija #temples are the earliest of the #megalithic Temples of #Malta and they're older than the pyramids of Egypt. Their makers erected the two #Ġgantija temples during the #Neolithic (c. 3600–2500 BC), which makes these temples more than 5500 years old and the world's second oldest existing manmade religious structures after Göbekli Tepe. Together with other similar structures, these have been designated a #unescoworldheritagesite.

Stonehenge, of course. Unlike when I first visited in the mid-70s, you can’t touch the stones (except during certain hours during the summer & winter solstice). But you photograph the henge without swarms of strangers in your pic, which is nice.

Are you ready for the England v Tunisia #WorldCup game today?

Whilst we don't have any footballs in our collections, we do have these carved stone balls from the Late Neolithic Period in Britain (3000–2500 BC). Hundreds of these were found in the north-east of Scotland, with these samples coming from Marnoch near Aberdeen.

It is not certain what these balls were used for, though there are many existing theories. Some believe they were used as weapons, while others suggest they might have been oracle balls used to interpret messages from the gods. Either way, we're not sure we'd want to play football with one.

Museums (national museum in beijing, shangai museum, and hubei museum) that i visited while in China.  I was more interested in the neolithic era and the first dynasties like the Xia and Shang. .

The Neolithic temples of Malta and Gozo are the oldest man-made freestanding stone structures in the world and are listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  Many of these megalithic temples pre-date the Great Pyramid of Giza by 1000 years. Scholars believe Malta’s temples and complexes were built as sanctuaries to worship an ancient Great Mother Goddess. Nowhere is this goddess presence more pronounced than in Malta.  I urge you to come explore this beautiful place on earth.

This is my new favourite place in England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
I absolutely loved it. I really felt connected to the ridiculously old history of this little island of ours. I even cuddled one of the big stones! #stonehugger #stonehenge #rocks #stoneage #neolithic #england #pagan #druids #fields #englishheritage #againplease
So I knocked another item off my bucket list 📜🖋, unfortunately my camera’s 📸 memory card wasn’t working properly, and I lost my best pics 🤬. Stonehenge is a prehistoric (Neolithic and Bronze Age) monument in England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 , dated to about 3100 BC. It consists of a ring of standing stones (13ft x 7ft each), weighing around 25 tons.

Trepanation was a worldwide used surgical method that dates back to the neolithic. A specific part of a living persons skull was opened and left to heal.
It might have been a way to cure people who behaved in abnormal ways. Opening the skull would allow demons and evil spirits to leave the persons mind. Maybe it was used to cure intense headaches such as migraine too.
There was different methods used to open the skull such as drilling, cutting and scraping with flint objects. 
The skull on the first picture shows that the person did not survive the procedure. The holes next to the hole is probably holes drilled to train on the surgical technique.
It shows that 80-85% of all skulls that has been found with this treatment the human survived. We probably should not underestimate the skills that ancient surgeons possesed.

A cold night "down west". I think the light pollution coming off Penzance adds some interesting colour and I love the split in the sky. This location is quite open so despite it being a warm night everywhere else, it was bloody freezing here at 1am!! #penzance #madron #lanyon #nationaltrust #cornwalllive #cornwall #quoit #quoits #neolithic #neolithiccornwall #nightcolours #nightphotography #longexposure #milkyway #stone

The Poalnabrone Dolmen in the Burren, Co. Clare, was a tomb used from 3800-3200BC. In 1988 remains of 33 Neolithic people were excavated from beneath the stone portal. #poalnabrone #dolmen #theburren #burren #countyclare #ireland #irish #irish_daily #instaireland #wonderful_places #travel #exploretheworld #travelphotography #neolithic #bc
Traded an arrowhead pendant with the marvellous @linusrowe for this awesome flint knapping ‘starter kit’. Going to be a lot of fun this summer learning how to work flint into usable shapes 😃#flintknapping #learning #prehistoric #stoneage #neolithic #arrowhead #axehead
What a crazy experience to see #stonehenge today! I’ve thought about this place since I found out it existed and knew it was special.

#whatintheworldwednesday  Plastered cranium from Jericho! Excavated by pioneering female archaeologist, Kathleen Kenyon, in the 1950s, these crania date to the Neolithic B Period (8200-7500BC). The once complete skull had the mandible removed, was infilled with dirt, and then covered with lime plaster. Marine shells were used to mimic eyes, and some of these crania were lacquered in paint to represent hair, including moustaches. The leading theory is that these were created as a form of veneration. A 3D model is available from the #britishmuseum here (https://skfb.ly/RGHD).

men·hir (noun)
a tall upright stone of a kind erected in prehistoric times in western Europe.
Hunebed D54, a dolmen, at Havelterberg, the Netherlands. 
A dolmen is a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb. Most date from the early Neolithic, 4000-3000 BCE, but some are from an earlier period. Dolmens were typically covered with earth or smaller stones to form a mound, but in many cases the covering has weathered away, leaving only the stone "skeleton" of the burial mounds intact.

For her necklaces, Marie-José Crespin draws on a seemingly inexhaustible range of beads. Her extensive archive, partitioned out into countless chests and cabinets in her home, features beads made out of gold, rose quartz, shells and an infinite variety of glass, but it has also come to include lion’s teeth, slave shackles, bronze good-luck charms, tree seeds, ivory and other objects. Its stone beads date back to the Neolithic period, at least 10,000 years ago. | L’Afrique des Colliers: Marie-José Crespin @johannjacobsmuseum #mariejosécrespin #colliers #necklace #beads #gorée #gold #rosequartz #lionteeth #slaveshackles #bronze #muranoglass #neolithic #senegal #mauretania #mali #sahel #exhibition #ondisplay #visitzurich #museum #globaltrade
