More than 200 previously unknown remains of villages and an ancient city have been discovered by Poznań archaeologists during a long-term research project in northern Mesopotamia - present day Iraqi Kurdistan.
Preliminary research results suggest that people living 2000 years ago in the territories of today\'s Poland were not an isolated group; it does not appear that their DNA was significantly different from the DNA of populations living in the same period in western Europe - report researchers from Poznań, working on the genetic "portrait" of our ancestors.
Did the invasion of the barbarians, which eventually caused the fall of the Roman Empire, contribute to the abandonment of the Roman fort Tibiscum in the ancient Dacia (now western Romania)? Or maybe it was the wild, untamed river? Polish scientists do not exclude the latter possibility.
Scientists will prepare a virtual reconstruction of the village Zabrost Wielki (Gross Sobrost) from 1917, located in the Warmia-Mazury province. This is the first project in Poland, in which such a broad spectrum of laser documentation technologies will be used - project initiators say.
