Archaeologists unearth ancient horse tooth, thousands of rare pieces in YemenDecember 25th, 2007 - 1:14 pm ICT by admin
Sanaa, Dec 25 (ANI): Archaeologists have discovered an ancient horse tooth, apart from a thousand of rare pieces during excavations at the area of Khamis Bani Saad in Tehama district of Hodeidah province, Yemen.
The site of the excavation is the oldest and the largest one in the Arab peninsula.
According to a report from the Yemen news agency, a French expert has said that the finding of the horse tooth is the most important discovery of the excavation, as this kind of horse does not currently live in the area, but in Middle Asia.
The expert has also confirmed that such animals lived here long times ago and left the area due to a change in climate.
This fact, particularly, might open several scopes for new studies on the field of climate change in Yemen.
Archaeologists have also said that some pieces found in the excavation operations indicate that the area’s inhabitants had been fishermen and not farmers as they are now. (ANI)
