Thursday, 21 December 2017

How do you feel when you have more questions than answers? Do you feel lost or confused? Have you felt frustrated or anxious when you have tried to discover new aspects of the truth? The truth is, there are some things in the world that can not be fully explained.
A lot of discoveries have been made throughout history that makes no sense, leaving archaeologists, historians, scientists and other experts with many more questions than answers. These strange discoveries are not limited to one region but extend everywhere from the United States to the other side of the globe and include everything from ancient objects, possibly alien objects, monuments and much, much more to discover.
What strange things have been found? What answers remain uncovered and what theories surround these oddities? We find top ten of the strangest things that have been found on Earth that really show how the world of archeology can be frustrating, enlightening and fascinating, all at the same time. Sit back, relax and enjoy while we take you on an enigmatic and mysterious journey!


# 10 - The Voynich Manuscript

There are a variety of secret codes in the world created by the human hand, but there is one in particular that completely disconcerts the studies, this is the Voynich manuscript. Named after Wilfrid Voynich bought this book in 1912, it is believed that the manuscript was created in Italy during the 15th century. While there are missing pages in the manuscript itself, 240 pages of text, drawings and diagrams are still intact .
Many experts, including the most brilliant decipherers of the two world wars, have tried to decipher the Voynich Manuscript without much success. It goes without saying that the theories surrounding the origin and content of the manuscript itself are quite amazing. Donated to Yale University in 1969, the manuscript is maintained to this day in the Rare Book Beinecke and is at the mercy of others wanting to try their luck in deciphering its content.


# 9 - The Longyou Grottoes

The caves hidden inside the caves of Longyou County in the Chinese province of Zhejiang could be thousands of years old, but, the true origin remains a mystery. Discovered in 1992, two dozen artificial caves made of sedimentary rock have been found to be open to the public as a tourist attraction.
Although their research is ongoing, archaeologists and other scientists believe that the caves were created before 200 BC. Massive in size, these handmade caves have ceilings that reach 30 meters high and cover hundreds of square meters. With all the structures made with the same stone, the walls and ceilings are mixed effortlessly together to create a truly exquisite architectural masterpiece.

# 8 - Gobekli Tepe

A German team of archaeologists went to work on a mountain in southern Turkey, only seven miles from Sanliurfa. The team worked for 20 years with the intention of discovering everything they could, which led to a very strange discovery. Discovering the Gobekli Tepe, dating from the tenth millennium BC, the team unearthed pillars that were once erected in a circle, with a total of 200 pillars of 20 different circles.
With standing circles of 6 meters in height and weighing 20 tons, archaeologists had to work hard for them as they continued to discover even more structures near the hill, which also date back thousands of years. The team tried to determine the purpose of the structures, could not find an answer and only came up with theories, one of which was that the structures were sanctuaries that date back to the Neolithic era.


# 7 - Unfinished Obelisk

Have you ever heard of an obelisk? An obelisk is defined as a "stone pillar, usually having a square or rectangular cross section and a pyramidal top, established as a monument or landmark." The oldest obelisk ever built and discovered was never really finished and is represented here. Although it lacks an official name, the Unfinished Obelisk, was discovered in 2005, is supported in northern Egypt and is 33 percent larger than any of the other obelisks found in the region.
It is estimated that if the project had been completed, it would measure around 42 meters in height. But why did not it end? Because the cracks began to appear in the granite, the workers abandoned the project, leaving it buried underground for thousands of years. Can you imagine an abandoned building of these magnitudes buried deep in the earth and that will be discovered for generations in the future thousands of years apart?


# 6 - Tunnels of the Stone Age

It seems that archaeologists really seem to find the strangest things. In June 2013, a group of archaeologists discovered thousands of tunnel connections across Europe that extended from Scotland to Turkey. Unlike the tunnels found in China, which we previously offered on the list, these tunnels were much smaller, dating back to 12,000 years before our era and originated by virtue of thousands of Neolithic settlements.
While most of the tunnels were barely large enough to pass through them, areas or small settlements appear, where passers-by could rest and also store items were waiting for them. With strange discoveries like these tunnels, there has been a lot of speculation as to why they were built. Some believe that the tunnels were used to facilitate travel as a result of harsh outdoor conditions, while others believe it was a practical way to hide from predators.

# 5 - The Puerta del Sol

Normally when archaeologists discover a massive structure, other structures are commonly found in the same area. However, this was not the case of the Puerta del Sol, located in Bolivia, near Lake Titicaca. Discovered lying on its side with a large crack, La Puerta del Sol is a solid piece of stone that weighs 9,000 kilograms at 3 meters high and 3.6 meters wide. Explorers from Europe found the structure during the 1800s and believe that the door was actually discovered in a different place from where it was first built and used.
There are numerous unidentifiable and odd engravings on the door, which has led to various interpretations of its origins and its use. While many experts believe that the door was used as a calendar in antiquity, others believe that the door has something to do with space. Maybe it was a monument to the foreigners who lived among us? Who knows!


# 4 - Mount Owen Moa

If you have never seen a Moa, there is no need to worry - no one currently alive on Earth has done it! The Moa is a large group of nine different species of New Zealand birds that were unable to fly. Researchers have discovered that the largest Moa was more than 3 meters tall and weighed more than 226 kilograms.
Extinct almost 2000 years ago, archaeologists found a great surprise during an archaeological dig in 1,986 that led to the discovery of a Moa claw in a cave. Far from being just a bone, the scientists found that both the muscles and the skin were still intact, which is very different from the mummified bodies typical of ancient cultures. With more than 60,000 known specimens in the region, there is much more to discover of this exquisitely strange and unique creature!

# 3 -The meadow L'Anse aux

In North America we find our next strange discovery, The meadow of L'Anse aux is located in the northern point of Newfoundland, Canada in 1960. Thanks to its proximity to Greenland, the meadows are believed to have been built by the Vikings of the area and its artifacts prior to the end of the first millennium of our era.
The first discovered was made by a fisherman who took the researchers to the mounds of the prairie in the year 1960, the excavations were carried out to discover several houses under the hills. While you can still visit the area today, tourists will not see much of the houses, as they were buried again after each excavation. What makes this discovery so strange? Historians believe that there were no settlers so far north, in Newfoundland, especially since the only real way to get there was by boat.

# 2 - Saksaywaman

The capital of the Inca Empire is located in Cuzco, Peru, just south of where Saksaywaman was discovered. The complex is located on a hill that dominates the city and is believed to have been used as a settlement for over 1,000 years. The researchers also believe that the structures have little more than a century in that they have a variety of stones and designs, unlike many other structures that have a unique stone pattern.
Modeled in a zig-zag shape, the wall extends about 1 kilometer long and was protected by a tower that was built and used as a temple of the sun. While many archaeologists believe that the complex was built as a fortress to guard the city during the rule of the empire, others believe that it was a form of communication due to the angles of the walls themselves.

# 1 - Mohenjo-Daro

Located in Pakistan, it is believed that Mohenjo-Daro was built around 2500 BC as part of the valley by the Indus Valley civilization, making it one of the first urban areas in the world. Almost 600 years later, the city was completely abandoned and was forgotten until its discovery in the 1920s, when almost four decades of excavations followed.
Archaeologists worked diligently to discover the city and its history, discovered brick houses without human remains and very few objects and artifacts. Finally, the excavations stopped when the city quickly began to be damaged due to erosion as a result of exposure to the exterior elements. With an entire undiscovered city and impossible to do so, it is hard to imagine the history behind the mud walls and the people who left their homes so many centuries ago.
