Archaeologists Find Remains Of Sky-Disc People In Germany

Goseck, Germany (dpa) -- Archaeologists digging at the place
where an amazing Bronze Age disc was found in Germany have
turned up a body and remains of a Stone Age building, adding to
the riddle around one of the world's biggest archaeological
sensations of the past decade.

Andreas Northe, giving the results of this summer's dig on the
remote hill in eastern Germany, said, "We found a child's grave,
a cache of stone tools and some remains from a long-house."

The dig was done at a spot in a line of sight from the place
where amateurs using metal detectors in 1999 found the Nebra
celestial disc, a 3,600-year-old depiction of the sun, moon and
stars which is believed to be the oldest extant calculator of
the seasons.

Controversy has raged since 2001 about what the gold-and-green
disc was for, who its owners were and whether it could be a
scientific hoax.

Digs have revealed that the deserted hill in woods near Goseck
may have been a town for millenia. The "temple of the sun" has
been been reconstructed as a tourist attraction.

Northe dated the latest finds by his 13-member team to the Stone
Age and said they included burned pieces of plaster wall.

Nothing comparable had ever been found before and it would be
possible now to study how Stone Age houses looked from the
outside. The house had had been 6 metres by 20 metres.

The grave was of a child aged between 1 and 3 who had been
buried with a fired-clay bottle, "a provision for the after-
life," Northe said.
