    Podcast Episode 52 l A 31,000 Year Old Surgical Amputation

    In this episode we talk about a 31,000 Year Old Surgical Amputation discovered on human skeletal remains in Indonesia. The lower left leg of remains of a child seems to have been amputated.



    According to a new study published in Nature "the remains were intentionally buried in Liang Tebo cave, which is located in East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, in a limestone karst area that contains some of the world’s earliest dated rock art".



    The remains were excavated in 2020 by a team of Indonesian and Australian researchers and archaeologists, who analysed that the amputation probably took place when the individual was a child and that he or she survived the operation and lived for another 6–9 years, before their remains were buried.

    Ancient astronomical sites are spread across the earth, and have been fascinating people for millennia. What is less known is that the Americas also have one. It is called the Chankillo Archaeoastronomical Complex and dates from between 500-200 BC. Located in the north-central coast of Peru in the Casma Valley, it comprises a set of constructions and natural features that together functioned as a calendar, using the Sun to define important dates through the year.
