Archaeologists Find 4,800-Year-Old Fossil Of A Mother Looking Down At Her Baby In Taiwan


Archaeologists in Taiwan have made a startling discovery. They have excavated 4,800-year-old remains of a mother cradling a baby in her arms. The 48 set of remains discovered trace Taiwan's history back to its earliest signs of human civilisation. The fossils were excavated from the graves in the Taichung area. The excavation began in May 2014 and took a year to complete. Carbon dating was then used to determine the age of the fossils which included five children.



But what shocked the archaeologists the most were the remains of the mother looking down at her baby.

"When it was unearthed, all of the archaeologists and staff members were shocked. Why? Because the mother was looking down at the baby in her hands," said Chu Whei-lee, who works as a curator in the Anthropology Department at Taiwan’s National Museum of Natural Science.
