Scientists were able to clarify the diet of ancient people
An international team of researchers was able to clarify the details of the diet of the inhabitants of the Chatalheyuk settlement of the ceramic Neolithic and Eneolithic epochs in Central Anatolia.
It turned out that the residents of Chatalheyuka stored grains, legumes, meat and dairy products in bowls. Mostly ancient people kept products made from the milk of goats and sheep, their meat, and also the meat of cows and deer.
Magnetic dielectrics were a hundred times faster than previously thought.
In modern electronics, metals with magnetic properties have long been successfully used. Among their other qualities is the ability to rapidly change the magnetization under the action of heat from femtosecond lasers (the length of their pulse is one quadrillion second).
