Tummy Video of the Ancients

This article, with its picture of an old Viking pendant in the shape of a dinosaur, has got me thinking. Could there be more surprises like this lurking in museums and attics? What else might our remote ancestors have known about that we never expected?

For instance, this little statue was made 7,000 years ago in Thessaly. And yet it bears a striking resemblance to something many people probably thought was modern. Could this be the Lost Tubby?

Thessaly Fertility goddess, circa 5000 BC, vs Teletubbies.

Coincidence? You decide.

This is the sort of thing that makes Science fascinating.
