Echoes of 2000-year-old Footsteps

The study of religious or heroic legends and tales. One constant rule of mythology is that whatever happens amongst the gods or other mythical beings was in one sense or another a reflection of events on earth. Recorded myths and legends, perhaps preserved in literature or folklore, have an immediate interest to archaeology in trying to unravel the nature and meaning of ancient events and traditions.

Echoes of 2000-year-old Footsteps

Postby Josip199 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 5:25 am

Hello Everyone, I am more interested in studying History of Artifact.

Here is an interesting Article I came up with which shares information about, The Corlea Trackway (known also in Irish as Bóthar Chorr Liath ) who Holds the Echoes of 2000-year-old Footsteps.
He is a timber trackway dating to the Iron Age. This ancient trackway is located near Keenagh, a village to the south of Longford, in County Longford, Ireland. The Corlea Trackway was discovered during the 1980s, when it was exposed during the harvesting of peat from the bog. Excavation of the trackway commenced in the following year. Due to the significance of this find, the Corlea Trackway is today on permanent display in a specially built exhibition center that is conditioned to preserve it in the state it was found.

If you're interested in what is preserved in peat bogs & river silt, look up Must Farm, which is in Cambridgeshire England. It's a collection of a group of nearly perfectly preserved bronze age roundhouse built on stilts on the bank of a river. It is a group of about 7 dwellings, the timber walkways, the palisade wall & a number of dugout canoes. It was destroyed in a catastrophic fire that burned so fast that the dwellings fell into the river sediments below before the fire could consume the houses, & their contents. Since the wreckage of that small village came to rest in shallow water, it makes no sense that the valuable metal items weren't salvaged soon after the fire unless the fire was deliberate & the occupants were taken into captivity. But that is only speculation. There were worldwide headlines about this find.The small village was dated to approximately 3,000 years ago.
