A traditional Karasuk-style knife found in the grave – Ouch, ouch, ouch!! . . . ahhhh mushies!

The ‘patient’ died at the age of between 30 and 40, and archeologists are confident the markings on the ancient bone were from surgical intervention and not ritualistic practices.

They also believe that this man, whose remains were buried with a cranked or crooked knife, lived for a period of time after his surgery.

Their studies also suggest cannabis, magic mushrooms and ecstatic dancing was used as ancient anaesthetic.
