Discovery of Ancient Tool Unravels Mystery of How Rope was Made 40,000 Years Ago
Rope and twine are critical components in the technology of mobile hunters and gatherers. In exceptional cases impressions of string have been found in fired clay and on rare occasions string was depicted in the contexts of Ice Age art, but on the whole almost nothing is known about string, rope and textiles form the Paleolithic. Researchers have now discovered a tool used to make early rope.

Fingal’s Cave, located on the uninhabited island of Staffa, Scotland, is formed from basalt columns within a paleocene lava flow, similar to the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. Due to the large size and arched roof, the cave gives off an extremely creepy sound caused by the echoes of the waves.
There’s a restaurant inside of a cave that’s inside of a cliff on the coast of Italy where you can eat dinner and watch the sun set over the Adriatic Sea. Nobility have been hanging out there since the 1700s. Source

The cave pools at La Grotte de St Marcel
d’Ardèche in France were discovered
by a hunter in 1836 when his ferret fell

terracing is created when rimstone
forms from the minerals in the water. SourceSource 2
