A FRIDAY ARCHAEOLOGY DIGEST:  Researchers believe that animal bones found in a cave in Morocco were used more than 90,000 years ago  to make clothing , according to the  Courthouse News Service . In a new study, they write that the material represents “highly suggestive proxy evidence for the earliest clothing in the archaeological record.” In North Carolina,  NPR  reports, archaeologists are undertaking a series of new digs to try  to locate the Lost Colony  founded by  Sir Walter Raleigh  in 1587. Its more than 100 inhabitants soon vanished, leaving almost no trace.

The work is priced “in the range” of $3 million, per Deitch.  [Bloomberg] shares always this Contents with License.
