The bottle dates from approximately 325 A.D. This bottle was one of several found in the sarcophagus, but is the only one with the contents still preserved.
The greenish-yellow glass amphora has handles formed in the shape of dolphins. The ancient liquid has much silty sediment. About two-thirds of the contents are a thick, hazy mixture. This is most probably olive oil, which Romans commonly used as a preservative for wine. The oil was layered atop the wine to preserve it from oxidation. Cork closures, although used at the time, were uncommon.
The bottle is on permanent display at the Historisches Museum der Pfalz near the town of Speyer, Germany.

The oldest known bedding — sleeping mats made of mosquito-repellant evergreens that are about 77,000 years old — has been discovered in a South African cave.
They consist of compacted stems and leaves of sedges, rushes and grasses stacked in at least 15 layers within a chunk of sediment 10 feet (3 meters) thick.

Directed by Carl E. Rinsch, ‘The Gift’ Belongs to the "pararell Lines" Phillips Cinema campaning. Placed in Russia, The Gift is a Sci-Fi short with a savage Chase sequence on it. We made more than 20 full CGI shots for the short. Check out the animated pictures to see how it has been done. We also made the vechicles and some characters desings. We enjoyed creating such an unusual atmosphere and sense. Not the regular Sci-fi film we are used to see...
