The 400 grams of coins may have been payment the Knights Hospitaller were due either from leasing the land or from industrialactivities.

"It is a rare find. We don"t have a lot of gold that had been circulated by the Crusaders," said Professor Oren Tal who lead the dig. "The study of these coins will contribute to our understanding of how large-scale economic interactions were made at the time."

Archaeologists have discovered two mummies made up from the body parts of several other people.The remains are believed to be over 3,500 years old and were found on South Uist off the western coast of Scotland. The skeletons were found in a fetal position and show evidence to suggest that the islanders had taken steps to preserve them by placing them in a nearby peat bog for a time before taking them out and thenburying them.Analysis of the remains has revealed that each is made up of parts from multiple individuals, none of which appear to be related in any way.

While the specific purpose and significance of producing these composite mummies is not understood it is generally believed that the practice would have served some sort of ceremonial purpose. An international team of archaeologists have discovered that two mummies found on an island off the coast of Scotlandare, like Dr. Frankenstein"s monster, composed of body parts from several different humans.

A vast area of land covering what is now the North Sea has been revealed following a 15-year project.Known as Doggerland, the huge stretch of land was inhabited by large numbers of people before it was swallowed up by the sea between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC. Researchers from several universities have been working to recreate what it might have been like by piecing together artifacts recoveredfrom the region."Doggerland was the real heartland of Europe until sea levels rose to give us the UK coastline of today," said Dr Richard Bates.

"We have speculated for years on the lost land"s existence from bones dredged by fishermen all over the North Sea, but it"s only since working with oil companies in the last few years that we have been able to re-create what this lost land looked like." A huge area of land which was swallowedup into the North Sea thousands of years ago has been recreated and put on display by scientists.

Evidence of an ancient city that could predate the Egyptian Pyramids has been discovered in Syria.Stone tool fragments, stone circles and other clues have been unearthed near the ancient monastery of Deir Mar Musa near Damascus, however due to current events in the region archaeologists have been unable to investigate. Robert Mason of the RoyalOntario Museum came across the finds during a trip in 2009."What it looked like was a landscape for the dead and not for the living," he said.

"Itís something that needs more work and I donít know if thatís ever going to happen." Mason has nicknamed the discoveries "Syria"s Stonehenge". A mystery city lies in Syriaís deserts, one older than the pyramids -- but the war-torn area is preventingarchaeologists from decoding its riddles.
