Approximately 3,700 years ago, a meteor or comet exploded in the Middle East, and archaeologists told him to wipe out human life through a land called Orta Ghor in the north of the Dead Sea, where he found evidence of a cosmic eruption.
Air burst "ruined at about 500 km2 at a time [about 200 square miles] Just north of the Dead Sea, not just 100%. [cities] The researchers were also covered by the stripping of the farmland from the fertile areas and the super-heated saline of the Dead Sea anhydrite salts of the eastern Middle Ghor, which were pushed into the landscape with frontal shock waves of the event. "Paper presented in the Annual Meeting of the American Oriental Research held in Denver, October 14-17, is a mixture of salts, salts and sulfates.
"Based on archaeological evidence, it took at least 600 years to get enough of the destruction and pollution of the land for the resettlement of civilization in the Middle East Ghor," he wrote. Among the collapsed places were Tall el-Hammam, an ancient city covering an area of 89 acres (36 hectares). [Wipe Out: History’s Most Mysterious Extinctions]
Scientists' evidence for the air boom is an extraordinary look from Tall el-Hammam, which has an extraordinary appearance of 3,700 years of pottery. The surface of the pottery was vitrified (turned from the glass). The temperature was also so high that potsherds peaked – something requiring 7,230 degrees Fahrenheit (4,000 degrees Celsius), said the Phillip Silvia Project, a long-hand archaeologist and a supervisor with long-hand-bath excavations. However, while the heat was strong, it did not last long enough to burn all the sherds, leaving the pots under the surface relatively harmless.
Silvia is a cosmic weather explosion, the only natural event that could lead to an unusual pattern of destruction – an event that happens on earth as an explosion in Tunguska in Siberia on 1908.
In addition, archaeological excavations and research in other towns in the affected region suggest that there is a sudden lifecycle of 3,700 years ago, Silvia. Until now, there is no crater nearby, but it is not clear whether the perpetrator is a meteor or a comet erupting over the earth.
Only 200 square miles of destruction of the area, the air explosion occurred at a low altitude, probably 1 km above the ground (1 km) is not more than said. However, the Tunguska air explosion was heavily damaged on 830 square miles or 2,150 square kilometers of land.
The team's results are preliminary and research continues, Silvia stressed. The team of scientists includes members from the University of Trinity Southwest, the University of Northern Arizona, DePaul University, Elizabeth City State University, New Mexico Tech, and the Comet Research Group.
