In Switzerland, found a “lunch box” the age of 4 thousand years

In the Swiss Alps at an altitude of 2,600 meters, they found arrows, fragments of onions and a wooden container for foods aged 4,000 years. These items were located in a rock grotto near the Lotschberg Pass tourist trail.

“Things belonged to a Bronze Age hunter or a shepherd who was moving to the top of the pass. We also found strips of skin. At an altitude of 2,600 meters above sea level, it is very windy, but shelter under the rock protects from the weather. Probably, one person or a small group was escaping from the wind, “archaeologist Regula Gubler told the” Live Science “magazine.

The grotto was discovered in 2011 by a local resident. The work of archaeologists dragged on because of unfavorable weather conditions.
