People all over the world have been doing fishing for centuries, but its exact history is not yet known. Experts say that it is very difficult to trace the history of fishing because the hooks and poles used for it have been destroyed over time. In the latest research, German experts have found an amazing 12 thousand year old thorn in Israel.
Researchers at an archaeological research institute in Germany have found this unreliable 12,000-year-old fishing tool. According to the evidence that has been found so far, the earliest known human civilization is only 5 to 6 thousand years old. In such a situation, getting a fishing fork that is 12 thousand years old is considered a rare event in itself. Archaeologists have found this fork in the Jordan River in the Hula Valley of Israel.
Each fork differs in size, feature and design
Professor Gonen Sharon told BBC Science Focus magazine: ‘This fishing hook is surprisingly close to modern hooks in size and is a fine example of the handicraft.’ It was made in such a way that the fish could not run away after being trapped. Researchers have found a total of 19 thorns and grooved stones made of bones. Researchers believe that these stones were used to weigh fishing poles.
About 12 thousand years ago, at this time, instead of nomadic hunters, slowly living in communities started hunting. The thorns found are not of the same design. This suggests that early humans used thorns of different sizes for animals in different ways. Professor Sharon said that each fork is different in size, features and design. These humans knew what kind of thorn was needed to hunt which fish.
