Rome Reborn digital atlas of the Roman Empire The 10 Most Not-So-Puzzling Ancient Artifacts: The Ica Stones | Archaeology Fantasies As we move on down the line of the 10 most not-so-puzzling ancient artifacts, we come to the Ica Stones. These are perhaps the most perplexing to me, since I don’t understand how anyone can look at these and think they are real. A bad day for Fred Flintstone These little gems range in size from cobbles to boulders, and depict a wide variety of images from humans co-existing with dinosaurs, to advanced surgery, and spaceships with advanced technology. Apparently, this one is a modern hoax starting in 1966 when one, Dr. The Fish That Started it All. Never mind that Dr. Dr. Dr. So, as always we must ask, What are the Ica Stones really? The stones themselves are varying sized pieces of Andesite, which is a type of hard volcanic rock. Then there is that pesky patina, which many supporters claim is evidence of the carvings great age. That’s pretty cut and dry for me, but for others, there is more to the stones then a simple hoax. Man Hunting the Tasty Sharp-toothed Brontosaurus. Sound Familiar?

Ten Archaeological Enigmas from Across the Globe One of the best things about archaeology is uncovering places, artifacts, and human remains that answer long-held mysteries about our past and our origins. But frequently discoveries are made that do not solve ancient puzzles, but simply raise more questions to be answered. Here we feature ten such discoveries – from indecipherable manuscripts to Frankenstein mummies, and incredible artifacts from unknown civilizations. Some of these mysteries will one day be solved as science and research techniques progress, others will keep their secrets hidden forever. The Unknown Origins of the Longyou Caves Located near the village of Shiyan Beicun in Zhejiang province, China, lies the Longyou caves - an extensive, magnificent and rare ancient underground world considered in China as ‘the ninth wonder of the ancient world’.

tabula peutingeriana Tabula Peutingeriana (section)—top to bottom: Dalmatian coast, Adriatic Sea, southern Italy, Sicily, African Mediterranean coast The Tabula Peutingeriana (Peutinger table, Peutinger Map) is an illustrated itinerarium (in effect, a road map) showing the cursus publicus, the road network in the Roman Empire. The original map (of which this is a unique copy) was last revised in the fourth or early fifth century.[1] It covers Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia (the Middle East, Persia, India). The map is named after Konrad Peutinger, a German 15–16th-century humanist and antiquarian. The tabula is thought to date from the fifth century.[2] It shows the city of Constantinople, founded in 328, yet it still shows Pompeii, not rebuilt after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79. The prominence of Ravenna, seat of the Western Empire from 402, suggested a fifth-century revision to Levi and Levi. Map description[edit] Publication[edit] The Peutinger family kept the map until 1714, when it was sold.

10 Mysterious Deaths That History May Never Fully Explain Mysteries Sometimes, archaeologists are completely puzzled by what they find. Sometimes, they uncover clues to solve some of the mystery but leave us wanting more. Then there’s the rare discovery that serves up just enough clues to shake some of our identities to the core and potentially rewrite our history. 10The Swedish Skulls Mounted On Stakes In 2009, archaeologists excavated an 8,000-year-old Stone Age settlement, known as Kanaljorden, near the town of Motala (pictured above, c. 1890) in southeast Sweden. No one knows who these people were or why they were buried this way. Scientists proposed two main theories to explain their findings. The second theory is that the Swedes killed their enemies in battle and brought their heads home on stakes as trophies. 9The New Evidence About King Tutankhamun Since his tomb was discovered in 1922, the cause of Egyptian king Tutankhamun’s premature death at 19 years old in 1323 B.C. has been the subject of endless debate. 5The Enemies Of The Maya

10 Mysteries That Hint At Forgotten Advanced Civilizations Mysteries Prehistory literally means the time “before we had written records” (roughly the time before the 4th Century BC) and ancient history is the time since our recorded history. Our concept of ancient history was originally firmly determined by the bible. Ancient knowledge was a lot more refined and developed than we have been taught hitherto. Despite wars and several invasions, India’s ancient history was largely preserved. Considered by the Chinese to be the “Ninth Wonder of the Ancient World”, the origin of the 24 caves thus far uncovered is an unfathomable mystery. Off the island of Pohnpei in Micronesia, lies the ancient city of Nan Madol. From Scotland to Turkey, underneath hundreds of Neolithic settlements, archaeologists have uncovered evidence an extensive network of underground tunnels. Puma Punku is one of four structural arrangements in the ancient Pre-Inca city of Tiwanaku in South America. Volumes have been written on the mysteries of ancient Egypt.
