Every year, scientists and archaeologists around the world discover incredible things, and technological achievements and modern instruments have contributed to making them even more successful over the past few years. This article presents some of the most fascinating archaeological discoveries you probably did not hear.
1. Reka live under the Sun’s Pyramids, Teotiuakan (Mexico)
In the underground tunnel beneath the Temple of the Pernate Snakes in Teotiuakan (Mexico) archaeologists discovered a live stream that might have led to the legendary Royal Tombs of the ruler of Teotiuakan. On the tunnel ceiling were discovered the remains of metal dust that had turned down the light, creating the illusion of night sky. In ancient times, when people with torches entered the tunnel, the metal powder was cast as a star.
Fifty meters below the Pernate snake temple, scientists have discovered 50,000 mysterious objects – animal bones, rods and metal balls.
Although the tunnel resembles the entrance to the mine, the surrounding objects and the mysterious ceiling look more like a journey into the underground world, into a mysterious city 50 kilometers northeast of Mexico City, which experienced a boom between the second and fifth centuries of the new era.
2. Mysterious temperature anomalies of the Great Pyramids in Giza
“Temperature Anomalies” discovered within the “Scroll Pyramid” project are considered by many to be one of the most important discoveries of the famous pyramid. Scientists say the information they came from using an infrared camera might take them to an unfamiliar room in the pyramids. They have found that the three stones are warmer than the rest of the pyramid.
3. Huge spiral structure and towers beneath Angkor Vata
Beneath the famous temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, eight towers and remains of a huge structure of the spiral shape were discovered, which led scientists to conclude that the temple was much larger than it was supposed to be. The new “Greater Ankor Project” has shown that the complex includes a number of previously unknown components and that it was linked to its “southern massive structure” on its southern side.
4. Stounhendz was originally in Velsu
Archaeologists have long known that the rock in the inner part of the horseshoe-shaped monument originates with the Preseli Mountains in Pembrokhirs, about 240 kilometers from the Solzberian Plateau. New evidence has prompted many scientists to suspect the universally accepted theory and concluded that the pre-historic monument was originally erected in Wales.
5. Civilization of 8,000 years old in Kazakhstan
Although the so-called. “Naska Lines” discovered about eight years ago, thanks to the popular Google Earth program, several scientists have expanded research into mysterious geometric figures. So far, more than 260 geoglyphs have been found, the oldest is about 8,000 years old, and the largest is a huge square, composed of 101 mounds.
6. The Great Sphinx is 800,000 years old?
The study, presented at the International Conference of Geoarchaeologists and Archaeometrists in Sofia, dedicated to dating the Great Sphinx, suggests that the sculpture is at least 800,000 years old. The authors of the document, Manichev Vyacheslav, from the Institute of Geochemistry of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences and Aleksandar Parhomenko of the Institute of Geography, base their theory on physical evidence of soil erosion under the influence of water near the monument in Giza.
7. A lost city in the rainforest of Honduras
An unknown civilization was discovered in the jungle of Honduras, which scientists believe is the legendary City of the God of the Apes. They claim that the discovery of the ancient city may indicate a previously unknown civilization in Central America.
