An excavation conducted in August by the researchers of the UAB's Department of Prehistory has made evident the unique archaeological wealth of La Almoloya site, located in Pliego, Murcia. The site was the cradle of the "El Argar" civilisation which lived in the south-eastern part of the Iberian Peninsula during the Bronze Age.
Harappan-Civilization was a Bronze Age civilisation (3300–1300 BCE; mature period 2600–1600 BCE) mainly in the northwestern regions of the South Asia, extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India.

THE Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and neolithic sites in Orkney could end up underwater if the “likely” rise in global temperatures of just a few degrees happens, scientists have warned. New York’s Statue of Liberty, Sydney Opera House and Pompeii in Italy – which is currently crumbling as a result of wet weather – are also among 136 internationally important sites that would be deluged if temperatures rise just 3°C above pre-industrial levels in the next two millennia, they say.

Co-author Andrew Adamatzky, a professor in unconventional computing from UWE Bristol, said, "We used acellular slime mould P. polycephalum to analyse the historical development of the ancient Roman road network in the Balkans".
