Oldest Pendants of Elk Teeth Found in Altai

Scientists have found pendants made of elk teeth over 40 thousand years ago.

      They were discovered in the Denisova Cave in Altai, and that is a unique find for this region. It is the most ancient find of the kind in Eurasia.

      It is proved that there lived various subspecies of the man in one area around the same time. Probably, the art objects made it possible for ancient people to identify themselves as member of this or that group. It is one of the hypotheses.

      A fossilized phalanx of a girl’s finger was found in the Denisova Cave in Altai in 2008. DNA analysis showed that this subspecies lived about 40 thousand years ago and represented a special branch in the evolution, different from the Neanderthal man and Modern Human.
