Unbelievable Skeletons Unearthed From The Catacombs Of Rome. Back in 1578 came the fascinating discovery of a network of labyrinthine tombs, lurking deep beneath the street of Rome.

Unbelievable Skeletons Unearthed From The Catacombs Of Rome

The tombs were home to the decayed skeletons of early Christian martyrs – believed to be saints on account of their bravery & unwavering support of Christian beliefs. Many of these skeletons (given the name ‘The Catacomb Saints’ by those who first discovered them) were then distributed across Europe (predominantly Germany) as replacements for the countless holy relics which had been smashed, stolen or destroyed during the Protestant Reformation. Once delivered, each skeleton was then clothed and adorned into a variety of precious jewels, expensive cloth, crowns, armour and even given wigs. They were put on display inside their designated churches as a reminder to all who visited, for the riches and wealth that awaited them post death – providing they swore allegiance to the Christian faith. 100 Incredible YouTube Channels for History Buffs » Online College Search.

Enormous megaliths discovered in Siberia

By April HollowayHave enormous megaliths been discovered in Southern Siberia, or are they a rare product of nature? A series of incredible photographs have been released by Dr Valery Uvarov, Head of the Department of Palaeoscience, Palaeotechnology, and UFO Research of the National Security Academy of Russia, following an expedition to the mountains of Gornaya Shoria in Southern Siberia.

The photographs appear to depict a set of enormous megaliths and Dr Uvarov is convinced they are man-made structures. Some of the stones display clear edges and angles. Photo credit: Georgy SidorovSensational claims are already filtering their way around the internet, for example, that the site is evidence of an ancient lost civilization, a race of giants, or UFO visitations.

Have enormous megaliths been discovered in Southern Siberia, or are they a rare product of nature? The temple complex of Raqchi. Having been in Peru for a couple of weeks and spending most of our time amongst ancient Inca ruins I feel like this blog has gotten a bit too archaeological.

The temple complex of Raqchi

However, on our way from Cusco to Puno we stopped off at a quite different but equally wonderful set of Inca ruins in Raqchi. I guess that is the thing about the Incas, they constructed an amazing array of towns, forts and ceremonial centres in little more than a century of empire building and they are everywhere you go in Peru. Set amidst beautiful countryside and surrounded by imposing mountains on a clear, crisp morning Raqchi is an impressive and moving sight, and one that could be easily overlooked as you speed past the modern-day village on the road between Cusco and Puno. Temple complex at Raqchi, Peru Raqchi was a major religious centre and home to a temple complex and palace that housed the great and the good of the Inca world.

The Bucegi mountain secrets - Hidden From Humanity. Ancient tunnels reveal our true history

In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains in Romania, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind. Section "I" contains excerpts from the book. Section "II" onwards is my own research regarding this discovery. I apologise in advance for such a lengthy page but some things cannot be explained in a few sentences.

To prevent this page from being five times longer I have only covered the absolute basics for each section of my own research but anyone who wishes to discuss this further can click here contact me. Sections on this page I.
