Published on September 25th, 2009 | by Admin


A 5,000-year-old Venus figurine has been found during an excavation in Çanakkale, Turkey.

Some interesting findings have been unearthed during the excavation, Aslan said. “We found a 5,000-year-old Venus figure, which used to represent woman at the time, as well as a seal with which people used to mark their belongings in prehistoric ages. Such a seal is a rare piece. In addition to these items, we also found stone axes, well-processed and embellished pots and spindle-whorls, which were used for spinning wool.”

  1. I think it would be great to see a picture of the figurine instead of the guy holding it.

  2. I couldn’t find one, unfortunately :-/ Will keep an eye out for one though!
