Europeans Made Artificial Islands Over 5,600 Years Ago - ROBERT SEPEHR

Hundreds of tiny islands around Scotland didn't arise naturally, but were constructed out of boulders, clay and timbers by Neolithic people thousands of years ago. Researchers have known about these artificial islands, known as crannogs, for decades, but new finding not only shows that these crannogs are much older than previously thought but also that they were likely "special locations" for Neolithic people, according to nearby pottery fragments found by modern divers, the researchers wrote in a new study published online June 12 in the journal Antiquity.
