Amazing discovery of a crystal dagger and an ivory comb in a tomb near Seville.

In 2008, a tomb was unearthed near Seville, Spain, which contained a collection of remarkable artifacts. Among these treasures were a crystal dagger, an ivory comb, an ostrich eggshell, and a flint dagger adorned with amber inlays.

The presence of these valuable items immediately suggested that the individual buried in the tomb held considerable importance.

Initially, analysis of the pelvis bone led experts to believe that the skeleton belonged to a young male, aged between 17 and 25. However, a recent study conducted in 2021 by the Research Group ATLAS from the University of Sevilla yielded a surprising revelationthe skeleton was, in fact, that of a woman.

This discovery has amazed researchers and sparked a reassessment of the site's significance. Leonardo García Sanjuán, a professor of prehistory at the University of Seville and one of the study's authors, emphasized that this finding challenges our conventional understanding of prehistoric societies.

With this newfound knowledge about the female buried alongside such prestigious artifacts, we gain a glimpse into an unexplored aspect of history that is likely to reshape our understanding of prehistoric times.
