    What Archaeological Discoveries Were Made In The Sixties? I’m writing a book and I want to know what were some famous (and not so famous) archaeological discoveries that were made during the sixties or seventies? If you know of any maritime archaeological sites during this period, that would be helpful too!

      The Leakeys find Homo habilis at Olduvai Gorge in East Africa in 1960.

      Inscription mentioning Pilate is found at Caesarea Maritima in 1961

      The wreck of Henry VIII’s warship the Mary Rose found in 1971

      The terrracotta Army at Xian, China, discovered in 1974.

      I am sure there are loads more – these are all I can think of.

      The term “prehistory” can refer to the vast span of time since the beginning of the Universe, but more often it refers to the period since life appeared on Earth, or even more specifically to the time since human-like beings appeared
