Archaeologists have discovered more than 11,000 stone tool fragments – used by hunter gatherers 14,000 years ago

***EXCLUSIVE*** Archaeologists have discovered more than 11,000 stone tool fragments – used by hunter gatherers 14,000 years ago. Experts investigated 42 fields along the Dee Valley, Aberdeenshire, to create a record of the hunter gatherers who lived close to the river from around 13th millennium BC. Archaeologist Caroline Wickham-Jones said early prehistoric communities were living in the valley during a time of rapid climate change as the last ice age started to melt. In a report published by Society of Antiquaries of Scotland Ms Wickham-Jones said: “The work of Mesolithic Deeside reveals an extensive archaeological record that comprises multiple traces of diverse activity throughout this landscape.  “This record is not and can never be complete, but in comparison with many other areas it is abundant. “The prehistoric population of Mesolithic Deeside was not scattered, nor isolated.

Book was returned after 73 years to Library with letter from the borrower’s daughter

Skyscrapers of the future? Architects reveal designs for high-rise buildings that remove carbon from the atmosphere

Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) unveiled Urban Sequoia - a green tower concept - during last week’s climate change conference in Glasgow. The idea behind the concept is to make buildings act like a tree by capturing carbon and purifying the air. According to SOM, the tower could capture 1,000 tons of carbon dioxide a year, equivalent to 48,500 trees. Urban Sequoia would be built using carbon-storing biomaterials such as hempcrete and timber, as well as direct air capture technologies available today, which according to SOM could sequester up to 400 per cent more carbon over the course of the building's 60-year lifespan than emitted during its construction. SOM notes that 40% of global carbon emissions are generated by the building sector and 230 billion square metres of new building stock will be needed by 2060 to meet population increases.
