5000 year old sites found

Do you recall reading or hearing about an old old town in Northern Ireland called Londonderry? Well, it is now called Derry. So, if you are thinking the name “Derry’ has a familiar ring to it, you are correct.

And, having been to the City of LondonDerry, this really caught my attention.

What has happened now? Well,

“Archaeologists have unearthed eight neolithic sites in Derry, some more than 5,000 years old, ...

“The exciting discoveries were made during work on the new Maydown dual carriageway and include a pair of well-preserved 5,000 years-old Neolithic houses and 4,000 years-old Bronze Age burial places known as 'ring-ditches'...."

Wow, it looks like another location of those who left sometime after the flood and / or at the tower of Babel dispersion era has been found.

History gets more and more exciting with every Archaeological dig. HERE’S THE LINK.
