5 of the strangest ancient artifacts
Mankind as a civilization already exists for many thousands of years, and practically everything that was once created is understandable for modern man. Some things remained in their original form, most of the items have been significantly improved, but there are such ancient artifacts, the purpose and origin of which is still unknown. The bright minds of science break their heads over these objects. You may be able to unlock the secrets of these antiques.
Modern technology of ancient Egypt
When it comes to ancient Egypt, the first thing that comes to mind is the greatest pyramids in Giza. But no less surprising historical fact is that in 1898, when examining one pyramid, an amazing ancient artifact was found, which outwardly resembled the model of a modern airplane. Amazingly, this object could even fly like a plane, if launched.
But on one fresco in the temple near Cairo, not only airplanes were depicted, but also other military equipment - a submarine and even a helicopter.
Klerksdorp spheres from the mine
During the development of the pyrophyllite deposit, miners discovered ancient artifacts in the form of spherical metal balls. According to estimates of archaeologists, the age of these balls reaches 3 billion years!
Although there is no evidence of the natural origin of these objects, scientists are puzzled to continue to build a theory of their occurrence.
If you want to know in more detail the history of this ancient artifact and other equally interesting items, we advise you to watch the following video:
Despite the fact that the next artifact is only about 2000 years old, its functionality may surprise any modern person. Antikirsky mechanism was found near the coast of Hellas in one of the wrecks of ancient Rome.
With it, you can accurately calculate the movements of the planets in the solar system. It is surprising that it works on relatively recently discovered planets, and most of the details of this mechanism were officially invented only in the XVI-XVIII centuries.
Simple objects of ancient breeds
Modern science makes it possible with great accuracy to calculate the age of certain rocks.So, in some of them found such ancient artifacts that any scientific approach is subject to doubts:
- metal pipes in the rock 65 million years old, near Saint-Jean-de-Livet;
- circle in the corner of the age of 300 million years, Oklahoma;
- Devonian iron nail - about 400 million years, in the Scottish rock;
- wooden handle hammer, Paleozoic Ordovician - about 500 million years, Texas;
- zinc vase height of 10 centimeters, the initial Paleozoic, Cambrian period - about 600 million years, Massachusetts.
Where did these items come from? Who left them there? When did the Iron Age really begin? What really was the history of mankind? These and many other questions give rise to these findings.
Magic "skull of fate" of crystal
Fans of films about the adventures of Indiana Jones will immediately be able to understand what is at stake. No matter how surprising it may be, the Maya crystal skull does exist, and it holds even more secrets than is shown in the film.
Ancient artifact has an incredible hardness, which is equal to 7 points out of 10 on the Mohs scale. Objects with such hardness can only be treated with diamonds or rubies, but they were not used for its manufacture.
If you use ordinary sand for processing instead of precious stones, then this should take 300 years of non-stop work. But there is no evidence that Maya possessed devices capable of working such a time.
In addition, there are facts of "unusual" processes that are associated with this skull, such as:
- the movement of the subject;
- color change;
- emitting an unusual smell.
Science is again out of the game, because it can not explain what is happening. Perhaps this is all the creations of extraterrestrial civilizations? But that would be too easy.
