The history of Chinese Civilisation may shortly be rewritten. Until not long ago, the wellspring of Chinese civilisation was thought to be Xia Dynasty, 4,100 years ago in the Yellow River Valley region. However, recently historians have been debating if the Chinese civilisation did not see the day 6,500 years ago with the Hongshan culture who were known to have produced some of the earliest jade artefacts which includes the first known dragon symbol. Latest artefacts found 300km from where the Hongshan culture was originally discovered may be the hint that may have played a significant role in creating the Chinese civilisation.

Unknown and Unnamed Culture Discovered in Peru
Under Project Tambo, a team of archaeologist from universities in Colombia, Peru and Poland discovered over 100 mummies in the Atacama Desert of Peru which belonged to an unknown culture that was about 500 years older than the Tiwanuka who were present before the Inca appeared in that region. These mummies were wrapped in cotton shrouds, mats, or nets, and they were buried in the sand without a stone placed near them to mark their location. This may explain why robbers have never found them before. Until their discovery, archaeologists knew nothing about these people and it is only now that they are able to discover some limited information about them, thanks to the items found in the burials such as metal jewellery, tools and pottery.
Dorset Culture in Greenland and Arctic Canada
The primitive Dorset people were named after the location of an excavation site by archaeologists and they inhabited Greenland and the Arctic Region of Canada from about 800 BC to over 1300 AD. Little is known about their origins or why they disappeared, but they were considered to be largely isolated people. Settled on the coast, they practised fishing and hunting for food. The Inuit, described the Dorset people to be gentle giants who were extremely strong, often being referred to as gentle giants, and they were also skilled hunters with small and precise tools. They had the knowledge of how to snap the neck of a walrus with just a harpoon line and then drag it with their mighty force home with them.
