Ancient treasures unearthed: 9,500-year-old baskets and 6,200-year-old shoes found in Spanish bat cave

Ancient treasures have been unearthed in a Spanish bat cave, shedding light on our distant ancestors. Remarkably well-preserved woven baskets, dating back an astonishing 9,500 years, provide a glimpse into the skilled craftsmanship of Mesolithic hunter-gatherers. Equally astonishing, grass sandals, believed to be the oldest ever found in southern Europe, were crafted 6,200 years ago.

These incredible artifacts, discovered in the Cueva de los Murci√©lagos (“Bat Cave”), challenge previous assumptions about prehistoric cultures. The discovery’s excellent condition can be attributed to the cave’s dry and low-moisture environment, preserving these relics for the ages.
