Jewish Archaeologists Make Important Finds in Siberia

Discoveries, which may prove to be an important contribution to the cultural history of mankind, have been made by two Jewish archeologists, Professors Auerbach and Sosnowsky, who have been carrying on excavations in Siberia for the past two years for the purpose of discovering the remains of the first human settlement in that part of the world.

The excavations have resulted in the discovery of human skeletons of the Stone Age, and the unearthing of bones of bisons, gigantic deer and mamoths, resembling the American buffalo. 700 different kinds of stone weapons were also discovered.
