Holme Timber Circle (Seahenge), discovered on the beach at Holme, Norfolk in 1998. The circle of timber posts within the intertidal zone studied and was found to have been constructed in the spring/early summer of 2049 BC, during the Early Bronze Age. Because of the perceived threat of damage and erosion from the sea a rescue excavation was undertaken and the structure was entirely excavated/removed to a location inland, despite controversy.

Found in Armenia, this 5,500 year old leather shoe is the oldest in the world. Made from a single piece of cow-hide, its preservation is so perfect that archaeologists originally guessed it was only about 600 or 700 years old. Only after radiocarbon dating did they discover how far off they were. The level of detail preserved is simply astonishing: ancient grass found inside the shoe was probably used for warmth. Even its shoelaces are still in nearly pristine condition. (repin)
