Prior to this discovery, all they could do was hang around with nothing to do but frown.

Man has been building wood for much longer than that.

Researchers found a selection of preserved pots and even an ear of corn on the first of the four wells

An ear of corn? 7000 years old? In Germany?

Big pig peaches: Corn?

I too was confused. From Wikipedia: corn, is a grain domesticated by indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times. The leafy stalk produces ears which contain seeds called kernels. Though technically a grain, maize kernels are used in cooking as a starch. The Olmec and Mayans cultivated it in numerous varieties throughout Mesoamerica

They say they found corn there too.
6500 years before corn was brought to Europe?
And TFA misspelled Leipzig

History fail and spellcheck fail
I hate the Mail

I think they meant an ear of grain. Not corn.

Scientist discovered an emaciated skeletal figure. Karen Carpenter's estate has demanded an apology for the unwarranted disinterment.

What a crock. Take a look at that stuff. Thats supposed to be the first thing man made when he decided to make stuff out of wood. Or so the article would have you believe. This is what is wrong with science.

What did your "first" of any new skill set project look like?
Those look pretty good and it is a good bet that if they have found 4 sites that date to a specific time range that the start of that technology predates these examples somewhat. Think of how many of these must have existed if these 4 are still there now.

Yup, that how the rest of the non-North American world uses the term 'corn' (which, BTW, means "grain" in Germanic languages). BTW, it looks like einkorn, an archaic variety of wheat.

What we call Corn, Europeans call Maize.  Corn in the European sense is barelycorn
