We’re approaching the end of the year (my how time flies) and now is the time for all sorts of yearly reports to start popping up, highlighting the best of the past year.
Heritage Daily is an English publisher focused on collecting the latest scientific finds and research discoveries, with a focus on archaeology. They do so via their website, though they have also just introduced a twice-yearly journal that can be purchased online or in print.
Their website has just published a list of the Top Ten Archaeological Discoveries to have been found in 2022 from all over the world.
And, well, the Hand of Irulegi (which we’ve spoken about on more occasions) was included on that list of great finds. This, we must admit, does not surprise us, especially given the interest raised worldwide by this small bronze figure with five words engraved in ancient Basque.
We’ll leave you with the article on the top ten finds, and the article that was published at the time the discovery was announced, which links back to the Aranzadi Science Foundation’s site.
