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 Murciélagos (“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.
