Just wanted to share something fascinating I stumbled upon the other day.

Right now a very important dating analysis going on at Yakutia site. The site is called Diring-Yuryakh.

Apparently this site has the potential of overturning completely the "out of Africa" theory. But will see. As the article bellow explains, this theory was met with a firce opposition since the discovery of this location. But now they are going to utilise the power of supernovae to find out the truth! :wizard:

Here's the link to the article auto translated to English.

Russian scientists have begun to study the site of the ancient man Diring-Yuryakh in Central Yakutia, which is the main mystery of Russian archeology and is capable of overturning world knowledge about the early history of mankind...

To begin with, you need to understand that the Diring-Yuryakh camp is located on the right bank of the Lena River, 200 kilometers above Yakutsk. It was accidentally discovered in 1982 by geologists who were preparing to show a section of the ancient Tabaginskaya river terrace on the Lena River on the eve of the geological congress. Geologists stumbled upon ancient human bone remains that belonged to a child of 8-9 years old. After that, they immediately turned to the Prilensk archaeological expedition led by Yuri Mochanov and Svetlana Fedoseeva.

At first, historians did not attach much importance to the find. They dug a monument as a Neolithic settlement of the Ymyakhtakh culture of the second millennium BC. Five graves were examined. Everything changed on October 9, 1982, when archaeologists, who were finishing dismantling the Neolithic layer, began to come across stone tools of a completely archaic appearance. Subsequently, taking into account the typology of tools and the stratigraphy of the section in which the artifacts were found, Yuri Mochanov dated this monument to 1.8 million years. In addition, we note that the early layers of the Diring-Yuryakh site are mixed with the river sediments of the Lena, which are 2 to 3 million years old.

All this together would put the Yakut monument on a par with the most ancient sites of primitive man found in the Olduvai Gorge of Tanzania (Africa). Since the 1930s, it was examined by the couple Louis and Mary Leakey, who in 1959 found here the remains of an ancient hominid, dated 1.8-1.6 million years. Thanks to these and subsequent works, the Olduvai Gorge is still considered the ancestral home of mankind. The find of Academician Mochanov cast doubt on this theory. Moreover, the scientist suggested that in Siberia Homo habilis ("skillful man") could appear earlier than in Africa.

Unfortunately, Mochanov's position on the possible "extratropical origin of man" met with fierce resistance in the scientific community both in the Soviet Union and abroad.
Moreover, all the results of his research have not yet been published. Mochanov himself tried to conduct research with the maximum degree of openness. Exploration was carried out on an area of more than 150 thousand square meters, and the excavation area reached 30 thousand square meters. At various times, Diring Yuryakh was visited by leading Soviet archaeologists and geologists, as well as the famous Norwegian geographer Thor Heyerdahl.

In the 1990s, the study of Deering-Yuryakh was curtailed, funding was cut off. The last were the Americans: in 1997, Michael Waters, Stephen Foreman and James Pearson published their dating of the site, determining its age in the range of 370-260 thousand years. True, they used thermoluminescent analysis - at that time not the most developed and rather controversial dating method for such ancient samples. Simply put, the dating they received is at the limit of antiquity that this method allows to work with. Yuri Mochanov passed away on October 20, 2020. Disputes over the dating of Deering-Yuryakh and its place in the ancient history of mankind continue to this day.

[...]n August 2021, during field studies, the geological section in the area of the Diring-Yuryakh site was re-examined. The expedition members took samples from the underlying and overlying layers, as well as from the cultural layer itself. To determine their age, a modern set of dating methods will be used, including cosmogenic dating, when the age of samples is determined by the traces of cosmic radiation that is formed as a result of supernova explosions. This part of the research will take place in laboratories.[...]

We add that, in addition to the Diring-Yuryakh site, there is another controversial object of this kind in Russia. This is the Ulalinskaya site, known among archaeologists, on the outskirts of Gorno-Altaysk (Altai Territory). It was discovered by Academician Alexei Okladnikov back in 1961. At the bottom of the terrace, the scientist found several pebbles of yellow quartzite with traces of rough processing. In their appearance, they resembled the oldest artifacts from the Punjab province (India) and Africa. Okladnikov himself dated the Ulalino site 1.7 million years ago and, like Mochanov Diring-Yuryakh, correlated it with Homo habilis.

Despite all the authority of the scientist, who is one of the pillars of the Ural and Siberian archeology, his position on the Ulalino site was not accepted.
Now the scientific community has agreed only that the upper limit of the age of the monument is 400-300 thousand years. The lower one has not yet been determined.

Wow, that is amazing! Notice "all funding was cut off". What the heck?!

Politics have completely taken over and corrupted science. It's sad and infuriating at the same time.

Indeed! And no matter how much data from the discoveries you can present, they will still take that and disregard most of it. It reminds me when they categorize political arguments as conspiracy theory. Which most of it end up being the truth with time.
