National Geograhic By Richard A. Lovett and Scot Hoffman Crystal skulls are not uncommon or terribly mysterious. Thousands are produced every year in Brazil, China, and Germany. But there are a handful of these rather macabre objects that have fueled intense interest and controversy among archaeologists, scientists, spiritualists, and museum officials for more than a century. There are perhaps a dozen of these rare crystal skulls in private and public collections.
Ancient Skull Found In China Challenges Current Evolutionary Theories Every now and then there's a new piece of evidence that shakes up what we thought we knew about the origin of our species. Take, for example, the recent excitement over the European tooth fragments, which as one paleontologist told National Geographic is probably "much ado about nothing". The latest find to puzzle researchers is a 260,000-year-old skull, known as the Dali skull, that looks remarkably similar to the earliest known remains of Homo sapiens. The problem is that the fossil is not where we would expect it to be. Archaeologists have unearthed comparable remains in Morocco, but this particular skull was found in Shaanxi, a province in northwestern China. The implication being that modern humans did not only originate from tribes in Africa but from human populations elsewhere.
Tiny Tonga Once Lorded Over 1,000-Mile Pacific Ocean Empire Tiny Tonga Once Lorded Over 1,000-Mile Pacific Ocean Empire The seafaring empire of Tonga in the South Pacific Ocean once spanned more than a thousand miles, serving as the hub through which distant settlements exchanged artifacts and ideas, researchers say. Tonga is an archipelago of about 160 Polynesian islands, with the core of the kingdom covering an area of about 195,000 square miles. The islands, located about two-thirds of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand, were first settled about 2,800 years ago by the Lapita people.

The Secret of Secrets - Tunnels in Bucegi mountains displaying our true history discovered in 2003 The Secret of Secrets – Tunnels in Bucegi mountains displaying our true history discovered in 2003 In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind. Since the declassification of the new ground-penetrating radar 2 years ago, the most staggering data has emerged of complex and labyrinthine underground systems in various parts of the world.
500 years before the Egyptians, an ancient civilization in Peru built incredible Pyramids The Egyptians weren’t the first to build Pyramids. An ancient civilization in America, more precisely Peru, built stunning pyramids 500 years before the Ancient Egyptians. This ancient culture is considered as the oldest ‘developed’ civilization in America, and it predates by up to 1,500 years other advanced cultures in America like the Olmec civilization in Mexico. Madol or Nan Madol Mysteries By: David VeritasContributor Profile | More Stories Monday, May 6, 2013 11:27 (ALTHeadlines) Madol, or Nan Madol, is the name of a mysterious ancient city found off the island of Pohnpei, in Micronesia. The entire city was build upon raised stone platforms in the sea instead of on dry land on neighboring islands, for reasons unknown.
High winds expose previously unknown Nazca geoglyphs - Galactic ConnectionGalactic Connection Strong winds and sandstorms reaching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, which occurred in the region of Ica last week, have revealed previously undiscovered Nazca lines in the Valley of El Ingenio in the Nazca plains of Peru, according to a news release in El Comercio. The geoglyphs include a zigzag line, camelids, a bird, and a snake measuring 60 metres in length. The newly-discovered lines correspond to the transition period from the Paracas to the Nazca culture, which occurred around 2,000 years ago. The figures were discovered by pilot Eduardo Herran and researcher Gómez de la Torre, during a flight inspection made this week in the Nasca desert. The geoglyphs were found on two hillsides situated to the left and right of El Ingenio Valley, near San Jose and Pampas of Jumana, where the world famous Nazca lines are concentrated.
Ancient Anunnaki Civilization Discovered In South Africa – This Changes History Forever! It has long been thought that the great pyramid of Giza is the most significant structure that is over 5000 years old, and the famous megalithic temples in Malta is substantial at over 3000 years old. These civilizations have also been considered among the most advanced of the ancient world. However, Michael Tellinger and Johan Heine have proven these assumptions wrong in recent years. They discovered Mozambique’s Maputo which is thought to be over 200,000 years old, and the 10,000 km-large city as a whole ranks it above all the aforementioned Earthly wonders. A Prehistoric UFO Hundreds of tiny metallic parts discovered in the Urals -dated 100,000 years or more- are pointing at an ancient technological civilization. Archeologists make a great to-do about certain discoveries. Always about those ones that are acceptable for the dogma. Other sensational discoveries are quickly hushed up. Let’s take an interest in the Prehistoric Nanotechnologies
In 1969, construction workers found an alleged 200,000-year-old antediluvian structure in Oklahoma In 19690, construction workers in Oklahoma stumbled across a structure that according to many could rewrite history. The team of workers discovered the remains of a 200,000-year-old structure. Newspaper The Oklahoma covered the story in 1969. Could Oklahoma’s “Ancient Mosaic Floor”—contianing mystery post holes—rewrite the history of not only North America but the entire planet as well? According to a newspaper report published in 1969, the structure found by construction workers in Oklahoma dates back around 200,000 years. In nearly all corners of the world have researchers and archaeologists stumbled across things they can hardly explain.
The 300,000-Year-Old Nanotechnology Artifacts of Russia An Oopart (out of place artifact) is a term applied to dozens of prehistoric objects found in various places around the world that, given their level of technology, are completely at odds with their determined age based on physical, chemical, and/or geological evidence. Ooparts often are frustrating to conventional scientists and a delight to adventurous investigators and individuals interested in alternative scientific theories. In 1991, the appearance of extremely tiny, coil-shaped artifacts found near the banks of Russia’s Kozhim, Narada, and Balbanyu rivers brought about a debate that has continued to this day. These mysterious and minuscule structures suggest that there may have been a culture capable of developing nanotechnology 300,000 years ago. These manufactured coils were initially discovered during geological research associated with the extraction of gold in the Ural mountains.

First modern Britons had 'dark to black' skin, Cheddar Man DNA analysis reveals The first modern Britons, who lived about 10,000 years ago, had “dark to black” skin, a groundbreaking DNA analysis of Britain’s oldest complete skeleton has revealed. The fossil, known as Cheddar Man, was unearthed more than a century ago in Gough’s Cave in Somerset. Intense speculation has built up around Cheddar Man’s origins and appearance because he lived shortly after the first settlers crossed from continental Europe to Britain at the end of the last ice age. People of white British ancestry alive today are descendants of this population.
