Archaeologists in Zurich have unearthed a 5,000-year-old door that may be one of the oldest ever found in Europe.
The ancient poplar wood door is "solid and elegant" with well-preserved hinges and a "remarkable" design for holding the boards together, archaeologist Niels Bleicher said today.

What’s behind the green door? Ping
On the next episode of pickers!!!
And a short time later....
The first “knock-knock” joke was born!
I’d go about 20 bucks for that, what do you say?
Did they knock first?
“You can’t flip this 5,000-year-old house!” Now, on HGTV.
Just be sure and save the doorknob for Aunt Clara. I’m sure she’s been waiting 5,000 years for it.
(For those of you under 50, Aunt Clara was a regular character on the 60s sitcom “Bewitched.” She was a bumbling, lovable eccentric who collected doorknobs.)

Looks like firewood to me
Charlie the Unicorn 3
Pink: To get to the snowman we need to first pass-(camera zooms out to reveal a door standing alone in front of the trio) the Dooooor!
Blue: The Dooooor!
Charlie: The Door?
Pink: Th-the Door!
Charlie: What is the Door?
Blue: The Door is everything!
Pink: All that once was and all that will be!
(The door begins to float and multicolored light begin to flash)
Blue: The Door controls Time and Space!
Pink: Life and Death!
Blue: The Door can see into your mind!
Pink: (Pink’s pupil contracts) The Door can see into your SOUL!
Charlie: Really, th-the Door can do all that?
Pink: Heh, no.
Little old lady.
Was there a skeleton of a Hoover salesman outside of it, too?
But was it the door to perception?
5000 years old!
They must have been excellent craftsmen!
As old as Stonehenge! I read the article but it doesn’t explain how the wood managed to be preserved that long, it isn’t like it was in dry sand!
They found a dagger and long bow too. Someone else mentioned ‘dovetail’, which is what I tried to describe above.
Dry clay can preserve wood - or - bodies
I wondered if they had used preservative salts - the alleged “experts” of today cannot even raise or build small 8”-12” replicas of Egyptian stone objects
Watching them try with a bunch of modern scientists and builders is hillarious
They never can explain the fine very narrow straight deep cuts in stone
The ancients are laughing at us
They just haven’t explained how it was preserved. Lots of clay soil down in this area of Texas. People have to get good topsoil and get it dug in to grow good gardens in some places.
There is a lot they can’t explain about the ancients.
Aliens from outer space? LOL, who knows about the pyramids?
The Egyptians, Africans, and Muslims don’t seem to be able to live up to the alleged achievements in architecture, construction, agriculture, socializing peaceably, education, science, surviving, self-sufficiency, prosperity, etc, that they all brag of from thousands - much less only hundreds - of years ago -
It must kill them that Cleo was not actually an Egyptian.....
So are we if it continues much longer.
Hey, we all know Cleo was Elizabeth Taylor!
Forgot to reply today about Howard Hughes. Wow, think he managed to ‘almost marry’ every big star but he went on the the next one before the previous woman ever committed, lol
I didn't recall about him and Hepburn but know he designed Jane Russel's ‘bullet bra’. Thank goodness THAT didn't last long.
Unfortunately they can’t find the 5000 year old key.
Hughes took of in a new 2-engine aircraft before making sure the gas tanks were topped off
Bad crash accident - torn up badly - painkillers in hospital
His simple idea of filling empty wing space with ping pong balls was typical of him
Those communication and surveillance satellites are the reason why TV and the internet are in use today
I used to know a lot about him and the other stars of that time. I’ve forgotten a lot but it’s amazing how much I do remember. I don’t know a thing about the ‘stars’ of today and don’t care to.
I don’t care for their morals or way of life. The women all look alike, like Barbie dolls, with plastic surgery, lol.
