Early Human Skeleton in Borneo Becomes World’s Oldest Butchery Evidence


The process of planning man Since prehistoric times it has been in a cave in Borneo, Indonesia. Experts believe this skeleton is evidence of the oldest practice of amputation in history.

Tim Maloney, an archaeologist from Australia’s Griffith University and lead researcher said his team was exploring a cave and found a tomb. They discovered the skeleton of a 31,000-year-old man who lost his left leg.

After examining the remains, the researchers concluded that the leg bones did not disappear from the grave or were lost in an accident. These bones are carefully removed.

The rest of the leg bones show a clean, painful wound that has healed. Maloney said there were no signs of infection if she was bitten by a wild animal or signs of broken bones if she had an intentional fracture.

They said that the man was amputated when he was young and lived for 6-9 years on one leg.

The results of the study also show that those who lived in prehistoric times knew enough about the need for drugs during surgery so that patients did not lose too much blood or get infected. Researchers speculate that they used sharp stone tools for surgery.
