Archeologists Discover Oldest Burial Fish Hooks

Post by tomredmayne »

Prehistoric people did not conform to modern society’s ideas of which jobs belong to men and which belong to women. Archaeologists recently found evidence that 12,000 years ago, at least some women were fishing, even though that was previously believed to be largely a man’s activity.

The scientists say the fish hooks they found with a skeleton of a female from that time period are the oldest known ones involved in a burial ritual, according to a statement from Australian National University. But they are also important because of what they say about the way the earliest societies functioned: “The discovery turns on its head the theory that most fishing activities on these islands were carried out by men.”
