The term is used to describe a wide variety of objects, from anomalies studied by mainstream science to pseudoarchaeology that is far outside the mainstream. Out-Of-Place Artifacts (OOPArt)
The topic of dinosaur and human footprints side by side sends an understandable shudder down the spines of Geologists worldwide, but try as they might to turn their back on it, the subject just won't go away. There are of course several fully accepted cases of fossilised human footprints but they all date from before Mary Leaky's discovery of the 'Lucy' footprint in Laetoli, which is estimated at 3.7 million years old.

A photograph alleged to show one of the ‘Dropa stones’ A number of publications, particularly on the Ancient Astronaut end of the Bad Archaeology scale, have repeated a story about some stones said to have been found in caves at Bayan Kara Ula in western China. The story became known in the west principally through Erich von Däniken’s second and third books, Return to the Stars and Gold of the Gods, although it appeared first in Robert Charroux’s work and has since become a staple of ufological literature. The Bayan Kara Ula (Bayan Kara Shan or Bayan Har Shan) region (around 97°E 34°N), in Qinghai (Tsinghai) and Sichuan Provinces, contains the sources of the Tontian He (Yangtse Kiang) and Za Qu (Mekong) Rivers and until relatively recently, it was very isolated.
