A wooden comb and 3,000-year-old locks of human hair containing traces of hallucinogenic drugs were uncovered in a cave on the island of Menorca.

The discovery of a wooden comb and 3,000-year-old locks of human hair containing traces of hallucinogenic drugs in a cave on the island of Menorca is a significant find. The discovery suggests that individuals on the island were using hallucinogenic drugs at that time and that the use of such drugs may have played a role in their culture or religious practices. The wooden comb may also provide insight into the grooming practices of these individuals.

The analysis of the hair can reveal the type and quantity of drugs that were used by the individuals. Traces of hallucinogenic drugs found in the hair can indicate that the individuals were using these drugs regularly or even ceremonially. Understanding the use of drugs in ancient societies can provide insight into the cultural practices and beliefs of those societies.

This discovery also highlights the importance of preserving archaeological sites and artifacts. By carefully studying these artifacts and conducting scientific analyses, researchers can learn more about our history and the evolution of human societies.
