5 Archaeological discoveries NO ONE can explain

All over the world, experts have found countless puzzling monuments, artifacts, and places that have remained a mystery ever since their discovery. Some of these findings literally rewrite history as we know it.


Countless theories have been proposed throughout the years trying to explain some of them, however, not even the best scholars can agree on the purpose, reason and building process of some of these sites/structures.

In this article, we take a look at FIVE discoveries that still continue to baffle experts

Stonehenge

One of the best-known ancient sites—other than the Pyramids of Giza—is without Stonehenge. This prehistoric ancient monument is one of the most famous landmarks on Earth. Curiously, it is also one of the most mysterious.

The intricate set of stones was built around 4,000 years ago and is considered as one of the most impressive feats for primitive man who was able to erect it. Not a single archaeologist has successfully explained how it was built. Interestingly, the how isn’t perhaps as mysterious as the why.

Countless theories have tried explaining the real purpose of Stonehenge, yet experts have still failed to agree on one.

Was Stonehenge an Astronomical observatory? Was it a religious temple? Was it burial site? We still do not know.

Gobekli Tepe

Discovered in 1994, Gobekli Tepe has pushed history to the point of where we need to rewrite everything we thought we knew about our ancestors.

The discovery of Gobekli Tepe has raised countless questions about the evolution of civilization and complex societies that may have existed tens of thousands of years ago.

This ancient site is believed to be at least 12,000 years old, meaning that it predates Stonehenge by around 6,500 years and the Pyramids at Giza by around 7,000 years.

The main structures of Göbekli Tepe are a series of three rectilinear structures which are located below the surface, defined by dry-stone walls, and containing multiple decorated T-shaped pillars. The stones were used mainly as support for the roof, although it cannot be excluded that these had a symbolic purpose.

To date, experts have still NO IDEA who built this massive, fascinating site around 12,000 years ago. Göbekli Tepe is considered the world’s first temple. Most of this ancient site still remains buried. Whoever built it, made sure the complex would survive along thousands of years, by backfilling the various sites and burying them deep under. So far, excavations and geomagnetic results revealed that there are at least 20 stone circles –temples— on the site. All of the pillars at Göbekli Tepe are t-shaped and range in height from 3 to 6 meters.

The Cochno Stone

The Cochno Stone is a mysterious, 5,000-year-old slab discovered in 1887 by the Rev. James Harvey. It features around 90 carved indentations, considered to be one of the finest sets of petroglyphs in Scotland. There is no consensus among archaeologists on the meaning of the intricate symbols found on its surface. Is it perhaps a map of the sky or the earth? An altar where rituals were held? According to some experts, represent an ancient cosmic map. The incredible markings are reminiscent of enormous crop circles that have so often been attributed to extraterrestrial civilizations. Interestingly, other similar slabs have been found in the north of Spain, Mexico, Greece and even in India.

The Inga Stone

Another mind-bending discovery is the so-called Inga Stone discovered in Brazil.

Believed to date back around 6,000 years, stands the Inga Stone, aka Itacoatiara, do Ingá. The Inga stone covers an area of two-hundred and fifty square meters. It is a vertical construction of 46 meters long and up to 3.8 meters high. The Inga stone displays carvings that are even today waiting to be deciphered. Researchers have found several carvings, figures, fruits, animals and other unknown figures, but most importantly carved on the Inga stone are the Milky Way and the constellation of Orion. Archaeologists state that the engravings on the stone have been performed with incredible precision and the details reveal a superb technique used by very skilled artists who certainly were very gifted and capable of creating these amazing engravings.

The MASSIVE Stone structure beneath the Sea of Galilee

Beneath the Sea of Galilee is a MASSIVE mysterious cone-shaped structure made of “basalt stones and uncut boulders”, with a weight of around 60,000 tons according to researchers. Its purpose and origin—like many other ancient structures—remains a profound mystery for experts.

With a height of around 10 meters and a diameter of approximately 70 meters, the structure is a massive mystery. Scientists believe that in order to build a structure like this, its creators had to invest a lot of hours of work in an organized community effort. How they managed to transport the megalithic blocks of stone is a question that no one has been able to explain. Archaeologists argue that judging by what they have been able to see, its builders belonged to a “complex and well-organized society” with “skills in economic planning.”

    yeah fricking mainstream rather than admit man had civilization thousands of years before their Hypothesizes are now taking on Gobekli Tepe with they were nomad hunter gathers crap BS.
    What on earth is just showing this and that’s what they’re saying. Is people who barley knew how to hunt and make crude stone arrows, and or stone chisels and crap made this. BS
    it’s either a biblical land mark to Noah’s time or possibly the Garden of Eden area.
    Which with people living almost a thousand years then this would be a civilization about 20k to 25k years ago.
    I take the thousand years = a day so creation took at least 6k years. then who knows how long Adam was in Eden before the fall; could of been several thousand years for sure.
    Even the overlap theory that Adam to Noah was only 1100 years years is false, because scripture does tell you how old he was when Cain and able was born only how old he was when Seth was born.
    Also Adam didn’t age in the garden he didn’t know about time The bible doesn’t say to look to the heavens to see when it’s lunch time but to tell his Holidays like Jubilee etc…
    Adam didn’t age.

      For me, the biggest enigma, is the logistics behind Gobekli Tepe, I mean, just the planning alone must have been huge, there must have been an industry making tools, then, there must have been some sort of transportation system, that needed planning, all those involved needed housing, and feeding, plus, there must have to have been some kind of medical system, none of that could of happened without planning.

    I was without work for 6 months when my former Fellow worker ultimately strongly suggested me to start off freelancing online… It was really after I received $5000 in my 1st 30 days when I actually believed I am able to do this for a living! Finally I am joyful than ever… I work-at-home as well as I am my own boss now like I always wanted… I see a large number of discouraged people around me, working the same old boring job that’s sucking the daily life out of them day-after-day… Each time I notice anybody like that I say START FREELANCING MAN!
